Summary: Pros: This card is ranked 115 out of 947 cards and I got it dirt cheap here. Fastest card of it's time and still very competitive even now. It looks like a beast and it performs like one too. Two power connectors to reduce draw from the motherboard. Con's: The fan started buzzing at first but overriding the fan speed and running it at max for a while cleared that right up and now she's smooth as butter.
Summary: Amazingly good card. Running BF3 at high getting around 50-67 frames at 58*C. Amazing. WoW on ultra. Seems you get enough ram to backup the card it will perform optimal on about everything. Also ran Metro 2033. You havent tested a card till you play this game. BELIEVE ME.. I seen 6950's DIE to this game 20-30 frames max. Buy 1 try it if it dont work must of got busted in transport or the seller abused it somewhat. Like the 1st person that rated this card.
Summary: ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 is a really good card from all the Research i did on the internet. but one bat thing is i could not get it to work in any of my AMD systems. as soon as i installed the drivers all it would do is crash my computer at the windows Start up On the other hand if you have a INTEL system is works like a deam. and that is my Experience with this card.

In a little over a month of use the card began Failing.!Started having overheating problems Game crashes an PC Operating system issues.
Much cooler than earlier versions, quiet, OC cooler headroom, great value

Summary: Very nice video card. It runs well, without a hitch at stock speeds. While it doesn't run as hot as a previous HD4870, it still runs a bit warmer than I like, but well within tolerances. It has run everything I have thrown at it and done so admirably. No overclocking has been tried with this card, though I think this stock cooler could definitely handle the heat over the first HD4870 mentioned. All-in-all, this is a good quality card with much improved stock cooling.
Summary: Fantastic upgrade from my ATI 4670. I went from 6.7 to 7.5 on the Windows 7 Graphics/ Aero E.I. Running an Intel socket 775 mobo with Pentium D 3.4 ghz, 4 gigs DDR2 667, 250 gig SATA, DVD-RW etc.
Still a great value, bar none best price to performance ratio available!

Summary: For it's age, it's the best deal out there! Still offers great gaming performance for it's age and can be picked up for under $75 on eBay. The one thing it really lacks to make it competitive with the current lineup of cards is DX11. I wouldn't let that sway your final decision however.
