Gigabyte GV-R489 GPU

The Gigabyte GV-R489-1GH-B is a single video card comes clocked at 850 MHz, but it has such stellar overclockability that it can blow other cards out of the water. This is one of the least expensive video cards (by around $100 in some cases) but is an amazing value for the price. This card comes with a pair of 6-pin connectors, a drivers disc, DVI to HCMI adapter, DVI to VGA adapter and two molex to 6 pin adapters.

At the time of this article, this card is the best value in the 4890 field. It's not the fastest single card (the $250 Sapphire Atomic HD 4890 currently holds that crown), but when configured in a crossfire setup (two identical cards working in tandem) this card blows everyone else away. With a 3DMark Vantage score of P8698 this card was able to dish out 32 FPS on Crisis and 45.74 in Far Cry 2 - some number to be proud of.

You really can't go wrong with this card!
