I have an Athlon II X4 635 Processor. D: And I'm getting the same card as OP. Is that bad?

I'd just like to thank anyone who helped me with my dilemma, and am happy to say I have finally ordered my card (not the black edition, all the etailers were out of stock on them - still a 6870 though, OC time!).

Mods can move/lock or w/e this now.

You should have gotten a Sapphire branded card. XFX have terrible support lately.

@bce22: I'll be sure to do that just for you, and maybe I'll even make a small .wav file for you to use as a phone ringtone. ;D

@Razi3l: I was on a bit of a tight budget, I feel a bit short on the prices for a Sapphire 6870 - The ones that were closest to the XFX price had lower clock speeds aswell.

Reading this thread it seems I made a good choice, I ordered a 6870 ZNFC last night to drop in my server for some light gaming and eyefinity on a single card. Running semi close to the OPs specs.

Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition
8gb DDR3 1333

Mobo only has 1 pci-e 2.0 x16 slot so I can't crossfire anything yet. Also only has a 530w psu (which should run everything, I hope)
