Got a new toy today

I decided to buy THIS :d I do not like XFX, they are turd. You will need a miracle to get a RMA number should the card die, I mainly picked this card up as a play thing to see how far I can push it and compare it to the HD4850. Its unforntunately also the only card thats black so I can match it with my system. Yes this does also mean if somebody needs a cheap graphics card both my HD3870s are on offer :thumbright:

Right, after some time playing around with this card I can officially say its not too bad at all. I slapped a VF900 on it along with some Tweakmonster RAMsinks and a heatsink on the back of the card cooling the power VRMs. Current clocks are 730MHz core 2.05GHz memory, not too shabby at all B-) No pics atm as they all need resizing.
