Monster Hardware! XFX 4GB Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition

If you're looking for the ultimate in graphics cards, and have a $1,000 to spend, here's just the card for you!

If you're looking for the ultimate in graphics cards, and have a $1,000 to spend, here's just the card for you!

It's the XFX Radeon HD 5970 Black Edition, a card that's special because it comes kitted out with several really cool extras.

First, it features two Radeon HD 5870 GPUs on one board, each GPU racing along at a breathtaking 850MHz.

That along is impressive. But wait, there's more!

Backing up the two GPUs is 4GB of GDDR5, clocked at a speed of 4,800MHz.

Oh, and then there's Eyefinity 6 support thanks to the six (yes, that's right, count em, six) DisplayPort connectors on the back of the card.

Note: The cooler shown in the shot is pre-production, the final cooler is expected to be a heftier bit of kit to deal with all that heat!

You're going to need your own personal mini-power station of a Power Supply Unit too run this card given that it gets its juice from a pair of 8-pin PCI-e connectors.

This card is expected to retail for around $1,000, and as the name suggests, it's a limited edition piece, with a run of between 1,000 and 1,500.

And if that's not enough, you could always fit two of these puppies in your systems ...
