Radeon 4770

My new XFX Radeon HD 4770 came in yesterday and I installed it this morning. What a big difference. The graphics is just awesome. My WEI score went from an overall 3.3 to a 5.5. Where it made the significant difference was the graphics and gaming graphics scores. They went from 3.3 and 4.6 to 7.2 and 7.2 respectively. Not to shabby for $95.
