    I hope the shipping wont cost more then 5$ >_<

    I gotta wait till 4870 is in stock.

    i have a real dillema! i want to upgrade my GTS. so, now it's between a 4870 or a GTX260. the 4870 is 100.00 cheaper, but has less mem and not as wide a bus. not sure what to do here ....

    It may have less ram and a narrow bus width but it has much faster ram overall. ;)

    i jusr read a few rewiews, and the 4870 beats the 260 and 280 in some cases! i haven't been on the red team for 10 years or more! looks like i might try one of these little power houses!

    what should i buy, Radeon, HIS, Diamond? they're all right around the 300.00 mark :)

    Could you then post how hot it is in load and if it is noisy. If it is hot could you post how much adjusting the fan speed helps.

    ATI is releasing the 4870X2 soon (August is the rumour) I wonder if my 520W corsair PSU can push it?
