If you have recently checked out our review of the nvidia GTX285, then you are sure going to be interested to find out the test results of Gigabyte's version of ATI's HD 4870, which is based on the RV770 core. The HD 4870 has been out in the market for a while now but is still a great card as it takes the memory to the new GDDR5 which, even with lower memory clock speeds, actually finds ways boosts its memory bandwidth over that of GDDR3, all with a 256-bit memory bus versus the 512-bit that all of the new NVIDIA GTX200 series cards are using.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.
