Yeah it is suppose to replace the 5770. But it smashes the 5770 and it is on par with the 5870 at times. This card is ALOT cooler, needs less power, supports 4 displays and is 12db quieter. Oh and i forgot to mention its 9 and a half inches. I got it from www.aria.co.uk who are also selling an XFX 6870 + 2 free games for £130 inc shipping. Aria are excellent, i couldn't recommend them more.

I would have loved to have the 5870 but they are just so hard to come by nowadays and you have to pay through the nose for one.

PS: i also got a free game with the 6870.

I know there are a lot of ways to fit extra fans in the bay area, but it always seems someone is looking for another way...

Very nice... I just bought me Gigabytes Radeon HD 6850. Were I live I can't really get much of a choice out here. I'd have to order over-sea's! Then I'm just paying way to much.. I'm still waiting on it, won't get it for another day or two..
Thanks Rogue! Appreciated!

Nice! Never thought of mounting it like that. In my experience an intake fan in the 5" bays drops temps significantly. Just put one in my buddys case, and MB temps dropped about 8*C.

I have some more stuff on the way, stay tuned...

Mouse pad has a great surface for the G500 btw.

If you put your ccfl inverters in there with that fan you can do dual duty. Additional mobo, ram, and cpu cooling as well as cool the inverters.

looks like a bargain to me, never had an XFX card before either lol.. the last time i had a card come with a free game it was an Asus HD3870 and it came with company of heroes, which i gave away because its not my kinda game lol
