GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4870 DirectX 10.1 GV-R487-512H-B 512MB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: A clear improvement over the 8800GT that I had in my rig before. All that 4870 goodness! Not as fast as GeForce 280 and sometimes even with the 260.
Great price if you catch it onsale with the mail-in-rebate (I got mine for $200)

Cons: Runs hot! (Better get latest drivers from ATI and crank up the fan speed to at least 35-40%)
Price could be better although the card does provide excellent bang for the buck.
Could use better cooling/fan solution (think impossible to find Force3d 4870)

Other Thoughts: Not a bad card to buy if you catch it on sale like I did. It is a step up for you 8800GT or 8800GTS (G92) card owners.
