    amazing value!!! This video card has exceeded my expectations!

    I have been unable to find any difference between the Diamond brand 4870 and other brands of the same card. I read that they are manufactured in different plants but they all follow the exact same plans from ATI. each brand produces an identical card, so go for the cheapest!

    Buy this card and put in crossfire if you have the money! Don't buy an nvidia's garphics card!

    This is an amazing card, at first i was skeptical but now that the new drivers 8.7 came out the card is just screaming. In age of conan it runs at 50+fps no matter where! That is the only game that taxes this card. Crysis at 1680x1050 runs at 60fps with no AA but on Very High!
    Buy this card!!! You will not regret it!
