    Very awesome. Beats my Asus Dark Knight 1Gb 4870 and costs the same if not less than what I paid for it. Awesome OC regardless of the percentage. The card itself is already like an overclocked 4870.

    IM sure some of the review cards were hand picked, its just the nature of the business, after all ATI and nvidia are here to make money and profit, or else they go out of business, that has been the way for every company, most if not all hand pick review samples, obviously they wont tell you but thats just how it works.

    Is there a reason for using Catalyst 9.1 drivers instead of the latest 9.3s or any betas that may be available?

    Thanks alot W1zzard ... superior card for $229 ..... i have Q:when you run crysis was it on DX10 or DX9 cause i see a huge difference between this results on Vista SP1 and this one which was on XP SP2:[​IMG]
    "if we compare the same cards and the same resolution"??
    BIG FAIL for vista if crysis in this review was on DX9 .... which i don't hope.
