Hi my name is preston and I recently purchased a visontek HD 6870 is a good card does the cooler suck? Those are the only things I need to know. My card looks different than reviews i've read I'll get it maybe 2 days from now. also can my Cx430 V2 corsair power it?

So was it a good purchase?

Visiontek produce fine GPUs. Yes, your Corsair CX430 V2 can power it. Do note, that most of the HD 6870s require 2 X 6 pin PCIe power connectors, whereas some others require just one. Your PSU has got one 6 pin PCIe power connector, so you'd most probably will have to use the molex ones.

I know I already prepared for it I bought a logisy's sleeved molex to 6 pin adapter already. When I get it in a day I will let you all know.
