    Wat else can I advice. U picked the best available card in the market.

    Because this card consumes a lot of power... U will need a gud power supply (A minimum of 550W!)

    Giddy can be traced back to the same Germanic root *gud– that has given us the word God

    No advice for you. You chose a great card and have everything else needed to run it.

    not necesserily .... ud atlest need a quad core clocked at 3 ghz to avoid bottlenecks ... and there is no major improvement from PCI e gen 1.1 to 2 .... but the thing is whats the rest of ur specs u know this card is a powerhungry beast i will be getting 1 of those in december and than xfire it with my current radeon hd 4870 ...... nice card there is nothing better than this unless ur mobo supports sli ... than u could may as well go fo a gtx 280 than ... cuz ull be able to sli later on but generally in gmaes like far cry 2 , crysis (nVidia sponsored games ) are freindly on nVidia hardware ... but the hd 4800 has more raw power to be discovered and in games which are nono sponsered the radeons are better .... for example in grid an HD 4870x2 is faster than a gtx 280 sli ... and also in assasins creed ... and 1 more thing nVidia is sponsoring more companies so that dx 10.1 is not promoted.. is dx 10.1 is ... than AMD cards will gain more performance as dx10.1 solves the rendering performance issues in dx 10 ... so it obvious ... get an hd 4870 x2 ... but i recommend visointeks HD 4870x2 they have better warranty policy than sapphire (lifetime warranty )

    thati nsane a single HD 4870 ' s minimum is 550 watt Os _O ... HD 4870 x2 need 650 minimum for proper power regulation throughout all the commponents in the pc ( such as HDD DVD drive Etc) 550 diya chalai le he might have damage the card

    ZULK go and read some reviews!

    The total Power Consumption with a 4870 X2 system is about ~450W . It never went above 500W.

    If u want to point out mistakes, then point it out with Proves!
