Got a new TOY

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I have got an early Christmas present.

I got a Sexy ATi Gigabyte HD4870X2 2GB.

I have installed it and everything appear to be stable which is excellent because I was worried about my power supply.

Next question is should I overclock this beast or leave it at stock until I upgrade my power supply

its recomended to have a 650w psu. i would have to think there pretty power hungry cards. better let a psu guru answer this on.

I'd upgrade the PSU.

Congrats on the new card, though.

i Think that a single 560GTX-TI was better

But If you got it with less than 200$ is a good purchase! Nice video card the bad thing about it is the heat

It cost £100 GBP which is about $150/160 USD from CEX
