One hell of a sick upgrade for free if you ask me wink.gif

Well, it was $30 in shipping, a bit of stress, and nearly 2 months without a card... So not exactly free.

I am still happy with the outcome, though (as I'm sure you would expect).

It was the first Lightning card from MSI on the AMD side. It was also the best card around when I started seriously getting into computer stuff.

More than that, it's the best 5870 to use under LN2, which I never got the chance to do.
