This thread should be used for any questions, comments, rants or raves you have about this card.

It will also be used for updates regarding this card as I work with it a bit more in the coming weeks.

I love this line "the HD3870 X2 announces itself like a swift kick in the nuts"

a nice card no doubt. I am in the market for a new card but seeing the reviews it looks like I am going to get an 8800 GTS. I just can't really justify the $200 more for it over the 8800 GTS.

Well, there is CrossfireX. I would be interested to see if you could crossfire a HD3870 and HD3870 X2 for triple Crossfire!

I'm just wondering about it, since it is possible to crossfire a HD3870 and HD3850?
