If you are in the market for a system overhaul, then today’s review will be particularly interesting. Due to some recent price drops it is possible now to pick up a HD6870 for less than £150.
If you have £300 to spare, how about buying two of the latest XFX HD6870 Black Edition cards for a Crossfire system? For only £280 is this one of the ultimate value for money gaming configurations?
The XFX HD6870 Black Edition is an overclocked card which operates at 940mhz / 4600mhz via the core /GDDR5 memory.
