The ASUS ARES Dual HD 5870 has the nickname “God of War”, so you would assume that its performance would be awesome – well you would not be wrong. The first thing that you need to know about this video card is its price, $1200 – but remember that it is a full custom version with two Radeon HD 5870 GPUs working side-by-side.

We thought that this was the perfect time to have a review roundup of this awesome card – not that many units will be sold for that price. Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 gamers will wonder why anyone would want to spend so much money on a graphics card for a computer – but then PC gamers will just look at what the consoles offer graphics wise and just laugh.
