This, and that it's the easiest name EVER. "R"5870? Now that's easy.

I'm personally a fan of the XFX version - After everything is up we want to throw a poll up to see what people like the best :D Check back to vote!

But yes, the name is much easier than the mouthful that is "Radeon HD 5870" -
"R5870" says it all

I am usually a fan of XFX but since NCIX just raised the XFX 5870 price from $429 to $500, I'm not so inclined at this time.
Crazy pricing NCIX
(The XFX 5870 is currently listed at $500 but shows up as $449 in your cart? Still not the $429 it was earlier)
