Is price a large part of your decision making process? This article aims to answer these questions and more in your quest for a new video card.

Thanks bro, this is my 1st vid card review and it did stretch me a bit. With your help I will get better. You and Matt are the experts around here

I was very surprised at how well this card stacked up to the 6950 & 6970 cards. 2 of these 6870's in X-fire would satisfy anyone.
