Final ThoughtsThe HD 4870 continues to show its value time and time again and this time around is really no different. The good overclock on the core along with the slight memory overclock helps performance stay up against the stock clocked offering at all times with it being able to pass the GTX 280 at some points and at others stay extremely competitive against it for a very reasonable price.It would have been nice to have seen a game included in the bundle, since ASUS do have a HD 4870 which comes with Alone in the Dark. It's not the end of the world, though, and what people really want when they buy a TOP card from ASUS is performance and this card manages to deliver.The only thing that we're not digging on the card is the feminine look of the cooler with its pink flowers. Again, though, this isn't a major issue since you don't see it thanks to the card facing down all the time. But it was still a surprise to see the design when pulling the card out of the box. Overall, the HD 4870 TOP from ASUS is a pretty good card. It gives us a bit more performance than the stock clocked card and comes with all the cables and accessories we need to get the card up and running straight away.If you're not interested in overclocking yourself and wouldn't mind a bit more performance for a few extra dollars, the HD 4870 TOP is a good option from ASUS.
