An absolutely amazing graphics card from Sapphire using the fabled ATI HD 4870 GPU. I bought this graphics card to fit into my new build PC.

However, comparing it to other graphics cards that are available on the market now, this would not be a wise choice. Firstly, NVidia have released an updated GTX260 that surpasses this cards performance, and secondly I would opt for the 1GB option. Upto resolutions of 1680*1050, with a little AA and AF this card handles everything, including Crysis at a mixture of High and Very High details. But if you go beyond that, it runs out of memory on the card and the frame rate starts to stutter, providing an ... Read the complete review
