Great DX10 Gaming Card

ASUS Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card EAH4870/2DI/1GD5
ASUS Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card EAH4870/2DI/1GD5

Pros: Cheap Powerful True CrossfireX support

Cons: Large in length (approx 12 inches long) requires 2 6-pin PCI-e connections to function properly Large stock cooler that may block underlying PCI/PCI-e 1x slots

Overall Review: I used this card as an upgrade from a 4650. The reason that I chose this card over a 5xxx series card was that this model in Benchmark testing proved equal to more powerful than the comparison cards. Also coupled with the price and the fact that DX10 will most likely still be used in PC for the next 6 or 7 years this card was the clear choice for gaming level performance of a budget.
