    What's your opinion on this card in terms of performance and price as it looks the mark. The look and spec of this GPU card want to make me invest in it and actual convert back to ATI:)

    The price is just right under a £120, so what do you guys and gals think.

    I looked at it and went for the Geforece 260 GTX as it was slightly cheaper.

    I've got an ATI Radeon HD 4830 512 MB and it's excellent, particularly for the price I paid for it. The HD 4870 one gigger should be more of the same solidness.
