Summary: Still a smoking hot video card for the PC, if you can find one at the right price like I did. Most if not all games still use Direct X 10 and 11 so; this card rocks. It was the hottest card on the market when it first came out so, its a big bargain now if you can find one. Definitely a Get It.
Summary: Very satisfied and impressed with my 5870XFX. This card performs very well. I really don't have a con but if you really want one, this card is about 10 3/4" in length. That's it. If you want a smaller card you will sacrifice performance e.g. 5770. Why do that. Look no further.

I had been using predecessor XFG Radeon 4970 before deciding to upgrade; an upgrade resulting my overwhelming interest increase for the ground-breaking leaps manifesting through this generation GPU.
Summary: I love these cards i have two of the in crossfire x and they are amazing. ok the only problem i have with them is heat ill say it again HEAT!!! ok there not as hot as the new nvidia cards but they run a little hot not to hot but the fact that there right next to each other means the top card doesn't...
Summary: I am an avid Nvidia fan. I have been using Nvidia cards even when I did not realise it, back with the 3DFX "Voodoo cards" which was bought by Nvidia. I was wanting to turn my system into a dedicated Gaming machine for about a year now.
Summary: This is the best investment I've made in a while. For about 2 months I was researching in forums and looking the reviews of numerous sites and after evaluating all the information available the HD5870 was my pick (Btw I've always been a Nvidia fan)... Why?...
