ATI Radeon HD 3870


I have been looking at different graphics cards for the perfect HTPC, since now I know exactly what I want to get from the HTPC and the perfect software to run as a media library for all the files.

Since I want to watch all HD and high quality movies and shows, I have decided to upgrade my graphics card. I have always been a fan of nVidia but I keep reading good reviews for the ATI Radeon 3870 and with 512 MB it packs a punch. Also DDR4 ram is more oriented towards processing movies and animation rather then games so it fits the bill perfectly. Unlike the very expensive nVidia cards this card goes for around $230 which isn’t bad for a high end card. This is one the first steps to getting a powerful HTPC to do the job.
