Summary: I was very excited to recieved the card shipping was done in a timely manner I will say that.Toke time to check the card out before installing it,everything look good,after installing it and turn it on i just hear the sound of fan is rubbing bad.I shut it down check everything not touching the fan...
Summary: With great games such as Call of Duty 4 and 5, this card ran way hot. I cranked up my fan to 100% and not only was it noisy but the temp did not drop that much. The card ran so hot that you cannot put your hand in the path of the airflow with out burning it.
Summary: Good about the card... The HD4870x2 is a very powerful card. With a Q6600 processor and 4GB DDR3 I was getting over 200fps at 1920x1200 resolution in Day of Defeat and Team Fortress 2. Fallout 3 runs smooth as silk on the highest settings. Now for the problems with the card...
