    Yeah, but the Gainward HD4870 GS 1GB is supposed to be very quiet as well (the initial 512MB version isn't). And with bit-tech having tested both cards someone in the office should be able to tell which one is the quietest. :)

    I'd get the Sapphire if I was spending my own money, but the heatpipe does make the card a couple of centimetres taller than a standard graphics card.

    Thanks a lot for the info, Tim! Much appreciated! :)

    Off the top of your head, would you say it fits in an Antec P182 case?

    Wow, take a look in the mirror fella. Here we have the best overclockable 1 gig 4870 this site has ever encountered, and of course you take THAT into account with a ZERO percentage ideal (for you red fanboi).
    Let's take a review on the FASTEST overclocked GTX260 and compare to the vanilla 4870 JUST BE AS FAIR AS YOU ARE, YOU GOOFBALL.
    Here comes the link, genius.
    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2008/09/25/bfg-tech-geforce-gtx-260-ocx-maxcore/8
    Awww, that's too bad, your little fantasy is exploded all over the link, and it's from this website where your smarmy smart aleck red rooster fanboi mouth yaps up LIES.
    Try harder next time, red boy. YOU LOSE.

    Silicon, you can calm down and write rational posts that don't sound like they were constructed for MySpace, or take a few day break, it's up to you.

    I left the first post because it's just funny.. :lol: but three of them in a row is laboursome.

    PS - you FOOL - claiming I didn't read the article....
    STRAIGHT FROM THE ARTICLE ITSELF, YOU MAROON..
    " What makes the choice difficult is that the Radeon HD 4870 1GB and GeForce GTX 260-216 are incredibly well matched not only on price, but also on performance across the board. Right now, the favour seems to have tipped AMD's way, but it could quite easily flip the other way when you consider that of the five benchmarks the Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 1GB Toxic won against the GeForce GTX 260-216, two of them were by less than five percent. "

    ROFLMAO - OF THE 5 IT WON - THE MEGA OVERCLOCK TO STOCK WAS ONLY 2% AHEAD, AND THE OVERCLOCK ACCORDING TO THE ARTICLE GAVE IT 5-7% MORE THAN STOCK 4870 1GIG - SO 2% MINUS 5-7% PUTS IT 3-5 PERCENT BEHIND A STOCK GTX260-216.

    Now who can't do the math ? You IDIOT red fan boiiiiiiiiii !

    BWAHAHAHAAAAA
