Lightbulb ASUS EAH5870 - "Unofficial" Review

Wanted to let folks know that I ordered an ASUS EAH5870 from Newegg a couple of days ago for $379

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...asus%20eah5870

As I've done with other ATI graphics cards, I plan to put together an unofficial review in this thread.

If you have any special requests, please let me know via PM.

- Install and Catalyst Control Center

- Analysis of Games To Benchmark

Benchmark Results

Up first are photographs of the product.

I know what you mean, but I have a hunch that the GT 300 will be something special. I haven't done a review in quite some time and I figured it would be a good idea to use this card in testing an updated suite of games to benchmark.
