Question  Question by That Guy

I'm looking at getting a 6870 but was wondering if this one or the MSI version which has a 20Mhz faster core clock speed, or will it not make much difference?

Answer by joebe on Sunday, May 13, 2012
This card will be better because its not over cloked like the msi one which is only running 20mhz faster.

Question  Connectors by ?

Answer by joshb on Wednesday, April 25, 2012
IF you have installed the drivers correctly then I believe it is a faulty card.

Question  Will this work with the ASUS M5A78L? by Mike

Will this work with the board I bought last week?:-

ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3 AMD 760G (Socket AM3+) DDR3 PCI-Express Motherboard

And also, what kinda board would take this in a 2x Crossfire configuration? Just wondering about future costs.

Is there any (other than the DeusX game) between this and the PowerColor 6870?

Answer by joebe on Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Yes this card will work fine. any board that accepts xfire will allow you to put two of these cards in.

Comment by Fiizzeh

How much watts do you need for this? and would a recommend a good £65 PSU? Maybe 650w or 700w will that be enough?

Response by stewartz
As far as I am aware, it is 450W minimum, but to be safe and to account for other components a decent 550W or higher would suffice, something like QC:40945.
