Sitting next to an Oscar-winning actress. A Bugatti Veyron. The Toronto Maple Leafs winning the Stanley Cup. The common thread? These are all very rare, almost mythical and legendary when they actually are seen or happen for real. They represent things that come along perhaps once in a lifetime, an opportunity to stop for a moment and smile that you witnessed something truly unique.

Well, the Veyron is far beyond my budget, and the Leafs–well, let’s just not go there. Certainly not quite as exciting as sitting one table away from the ethereal Julianne Moore in person (which I did by the way!) but no less rare, let’s try to conjure up a similarly unique experience as we move forward with today’s discussion: graphics cards. What’s so special about that? Ah, glad you asked. Today brings Sapphire’s Radeon 5870 Vapor-X accomplishing a very rare feat of top performance, low temperatures, low noise, and good value for your money.

Today we’ll examine the Sapphire 5870 Vapor-X in great detail and see just how far it can push the envelope toward becoming the new graphics performance king.
