Great job an nice pics.

But I'll trust pretty much every other review site on the net over probably the biggest Intel fanboy at CF

I would give it a go if I had a HD 4870, as we both have E8400s/E3110s
Got your hands on one of the E0's yet? E8600 is yummy.

i'd trust them too, my review is in addition to anand and tom's hardware to supplement them with someone else's perspective on the hardware. if it weren't for this damn hurricane costing me almost 600 bucks i'd be running dry ice or a vapochill right now.

nice post...
complaining about a fast card is like complaining your johnson is too big or your car is too fast.... you can never have too much performance out of a computer.

meh...

not much of a review, pretty much just a plug for a product with a bunch of pretty cool pictures, and not even nVidia's top of the line product at that, it would be more of a true review if you had a 4870 to swap into the same system and compare the results...

the "review" part of the thread starts going downhill towards the slippery slope of "product plug" pretty fast once your agenda becomes apparent in only the second sentence of the post...

at about the same price point, the 4870 beats the 260 in every benchmark I've seen in real reviews (no offense), sandwiched in between the 280 and 260, the pictures are cool though, mostly because free stuff is always way cooler than stuff you have to pay for...
