Pros
Powerful, good cooling.
Cons
None
Summary
This card will play all your games on the highest settings. I don't find that the exaust is that hot which means the cooler does its job well. Picked this card up for about $250 and was a great buy. This card will make NVidia enthusiasts switch over once they see what this card is capable of.

Cons
None
Summary
One of the best GPU purchases for the money I ever purchased, outstanding high end performance. Performs close to the GTX 280 for much less.

Awesome fast card,
Cons
Really none.
Summary
This is just an awesome card, I went from a Radeon 1950XT to this card, and wow just amazing difference, can do alot more with AA/AF and I'm totally impressed. Visiontek offers a good warrenty on this card, but I'll be honest, warrenty is not a big thing for me, as I'll replace the card before I need to use the warrenty anyways. Also for price compared to it's rival Nvidia counterpart they can't even compare. Time for a new monitor now, and maybe another one for some crossfire sexyness.

Pros
contrairement a ce que certains affirme, personellement je n'ai eu aucun problemes avec cette carte. Facile a installer, Assez silentieuse avec le dernier catalyst, devient chaude, mais dans les limites de l'acceptable. cod4 90 frame et plus avec tout au max et ce n'est qu'un exemple, fantastique

Pros
Awesome price-performance (for now)
keeps cool (with right program)
looks sleek
one of ATI's best up-to-date products
massive improvement over an 8800GT, MASSIVE
Cons
2 slot design, but arent all new cards like that?
didnt get one sooner
runs hot without fixing fan speeds.
Summary
This video card is amazing... best thing out there for price-performance. And I was shocked when I read it was 3.6 GHZ originally...<3'ing it. And somethin I would recommend for you to use, is to google the word 'rivatuner' and after you install that, open it click customize (first one you see near top), click the icon of the video card, enable low-level fan control, fixed. Then set the percentage from 30-45 percent (stock caps it at 20%), and youll drop  the idle and load temps by a lot without having the fan crazy loud, 35% gets about 66 on load temps (using an antec 900 case). this item is AWESOMMEEEEEEE.

Pros
-Very Fast Graphics card
-Can play almost anything on high settings
-Quiet when idle and under load
Cons
-Have to change fan speed through profile changing
-Fan is loud at 100%
Summary
I have recently bought this graphics card and all that I can say is that ATI really worked hard on this one. The 4870 is a card that you get you bang for your buck.
