Good review, though i have a few suggestions.
The 1 minute section where you play around with the catalyst control center was abit drawn out. Also you need some benchmarks comparing the capabilities of the card to other 5870's and perhaps a few nvidia cards. Yes the voltage tweak sounds cool, but seeing some hard numbers would make a better case for why I should buy THIS card.

Thank you for your suggestions, I know I should had put some hard facts in this review but I did not have access to a GTX295 at this time and did not have access to the proper equipment for the benchmarks (My current PC is an old e8500)

I will surely make the next one better and include a few numbers in it, it was mostly to show my future boss what I can do. If he hires me I'm pretty sure the next video review will be kickass!!
thanks for your input! :D

Very nice review of the card. I agree that the CCC portion was a bit too long. Keep it up.
