    I must say that I agree 100% they are a great card for the money. Makes me remember how smokin' the ATI 9500 Non Pro cards were back in their day.

    Fits your system specs have you as a Team NV player; beware of us ATI fanboys that may try and take you down :p

    I love mine, but I need to make a decision to get a third or go for a single 5870 Matrix 2gb and eventually CrossFire those. I just need a review of the Matrix's overclocking features and such.. If the "super hybrid engine" actually works it will be win.

    I approve this thread:toast:

    I am so in love with my Sapphire. I have NEVER overclocked it, everything is just smooth on the thing and I got it in a newegg deal with a free PSU. Now if only my ASrock X58 extreme would hop on a plane itself and come meet my 5850, i7 930 and the 6 gigs of OCZ that are here waiting.:D

    Oh by far. Many reference models with Volterra VRs can be overclocked like mad and so easily too. Jimmyz can run his XFX Black at like 1100/1250 under water.

    I wasn't in the market for one myself quite yet as I was still waiting for some to be available closer to $250 than $300 but the combo of shitty AA in BFBC2 with my GTX 280 and the Newegg sale last weekend and the disappointing fact that Fermi wasn't going to help prices any made me pull the trigger on a non-ref Sapphire for $279 shipped. And love it so far even though I can't softmod the voltage. Still pushing it but so far stable at 810/1100.

    Check Fry's out, they have a hot deal on the 965 + Gigabyte 785G UD2H mATX motherboard for $164.99 + tax or $149.99 after a $15 rebate, in store only though. Grab that, sell the board, and you have yourself a Phenom II X4 965 for under $100.
