Powercolor HD 4870 Stalker Edition: Great card for a budget gamer
20 April 2011
Summary: I bought this card to go into my first custom built PC as it fit within the budget I had set and came with good recommendations from review sites and friends. It cost me around £120 around a year and a half ago but can now be found much cheaper. The card itself is fairly impressive and came boxed with a copy of Stalker: Clear Sky.
Pros: Looks good inside the case, cheap to buy, good performance

Summary: Hallo werte Ciao-Gemeinde Im Zuge des Zusammenstellen und Aufbaus eines neuen PCs blieb ( wie meistens im Zuge solcher Aktionen ) kein Stein auf dem anderen. Die Technik entwickelt sich einfach ungeheuer schnell - was heute gut ist, ist morgen schlecht - was heute sehr gut, ist zumindest noch bis übermorgen brauchbar.
