This video card should be comparable to your 4870, http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Your choice both will perform very semilar, but I like the 260 with 216 cores for 10$ less

The motherboard supports crossfire and the PSU also has enough power and connectors for crossfire. I would stick with the 4870 1GB so you have the option of adding another card in crossfire later.

Nice build! Pull the trigger! :)

Frankly, I have no clue about that card reader. I hope it supports whatever format your camcorder or camera uses.

The rest is beautiful.

havent clicked yet, waitin on NCIX sale... crossin my fingers to see if theres a cheaper gfx card and a decent monitor....

you need a tiny drop of thermal compound between the processor and the heatsink . And I mean tiny . Its to ensure theres a good heat transfer .

Thats a great build btw .

can I borrow it?
