Honestly, if you asked me a few years ago "What brand Video Card should I look at if I want something different from the norm?", the answer would've been so different to what it is today.
GIGABYTE while always being a strong company in the video card market, hadn't offered us anything that really stood out from the pack when it came to performance. Sure, they offered a good price and good warranty, but as a card that stood out from the pack there were clearly other options.
These days, though, GIGABYTE has become one of those companies who are a leader when it comes to standing out from the pack. The Super Overclock series has become a fan favorite among users, but also among us at TweakTown thanks to an awesome out of the box overclock.
The latest card to get the Super Overclock treatment is the HD 5870 which has become a real fan favorite thanks to not only great performance, but also fantastic value. Combining a series that we love with a model that we love should be the perfect formula. Before we find out if it is, though, let's have a closer look at the package GIGABYTE has put together along with a closer look at the card itself.
