One is great, Two is better(Crossfire), Affordable Gamer budget, buy two.

Summary: Using two of these on Crossfire, has done some excellent rendering for the most current video game. Battlefield 3 has a fps of about 40-50 FPS, which can be compared to a 5000 or even 6000 series when using crossfire. I'd definitely recommend this card as a single gpu for high-end office processing or two gpus running crossfire to have the most current and affordable gpu without such a high latency and price to pay.
Best Midrange card for the money, Low power use, Great overclock, AWESOME!

Summary: I am NOT a hardcore gamer. I do however, really enjoy making ho-hum computers into great gaming and media machines. I have a HP Pavillion Elite m 8400f PC. Its a standard desktop. Nothing special. 2.4GHz AMD Phenom X 4, 8GB Ram, 350W Power supply, the basic stuff. Now this card, I really took a risk on... The manufacturer,XFX says that It requires a 450W PSU. however they fail to say that It only applies to High End gaming rigs.
Summary: Pros: -Stays cool with ease -Overclocks well -Scales in CrossfireX like no other -First card to utilize GDDR5 -Matches what a 4850 can do with a minor overclock. Cons: -Limited to 512MB of memory (stutters in higher resolutions) -Memory bandwidth is low by today's standards -Lack of voltage control limits the overclock potential -Non-Reference design further limits the overclock potential _______________________________________________________________________________...
Summary: For what it was when released, there was never a better card. a 100(ish) dollar video card that was within reach of even the most expensive high performance single card solutions available...and while achieving that also ran cooler, used less power, and ran quieter. Here we are 2 years later, STILL a damn decent card! The new 57 and 58 and now 68 cards FINALLY caught up and passed the venerable 4800s and its cheaper little brother the 4770..
Summary: The HD4770 is without doubt the best grapics card in it's category. It consistantly out performs it's competetors (see benchmark tests) through your browser. I happened onto the HD4770 after recommendations by associates who have used the unit over the last couple of years without problem and are still so satisfied with it's performance that upgrading is not considered. A few points to note.
