I think im just going to go with the Newegg.com - VisionTek 900244 Radeon HD 4870 512MB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

It seems like people like this card alot and there has to be a good reason behind it . You guys think thats a good choice for the build I put together?
