Hello everyone,
  Just ordered my Gamer. Went w the ATI 4870 1 Gig. Asked what brand after they ordered the parts. Answer: "Whatever they send." Ouch Nice right, I feel really warm inside.

If you ordered ATI what Brand did you receive? Please post. Asus, Sapphire, HIS,  Powercolor, MSI, Gigabyte, XFX, Diamond .....

Thanks Much Munch, I  hope for Sapphire, I heard that Powercolor needs tweaking. I also, read your reply to my other post re the V8 cooler over Asetek liquid Cooler, perhaps your right. Checking.....

Here take a look at this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048%20106792627%201067940678&bop=And&CompareItemList=N82E16814150352%2CN82E16814102815%2CN82E16814127400%2CN82E16814131120

The only difference is a slight increase in clock speed other then that they are usually the same sometimes they have different coolers on them also but if i had to pick i would go with the new XFX i used to buy those when i used nvidia they love to overclock and they make great products

I received my PC on 3/19/09 even though the email confirmation order stated the model as being the Powercooler, I popped the lid and to my surprise there was the Sapphire unit.

The best thing is usually to just buy a video card separate from maybe newegg or another retailer...much cheaper and tends to work more often.
