Customer Reviews of Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 256-bit PCIE 2.0 DirectX 10.1 Video Card
Good enough to play all games on high12/6/2008
I found this card to be good enough to play most games on high graphics without lag either. However, for those direct x 10 fans I think this card will not perform to your expectations. Perhaps its just my CPU for its not as updated as this graphics card. So overall I give it a 4 for graphics and performance. High setting on directx 9 is good enough. Oh last thing be sure you have fixed this graphics bios. I don't know if the new ones come updated already but depending on how long that package has been sitting there it may have the bios that crashes. You just need to update it, the ati forum can explain.
