     What is arguably the fastest graphics card in the world has landed in the secret underground testing facility known as ClubOC Labs... Okay, the secret lab is nothing more than a cluttered garage, but we really do have an ATi Radeon X850XT Platinum Edition graphics card! As if the X800XT wasn't enough, ATi decided to do some tweaking here and there, increase the clock speed, and slap a monster cooling system on the card. The result...the X850XTPE. While this is by no means a budget card, it is the ultimate video card that you've been dreaming about ever since you installed Doom 3 and watched in horror as your outdated video card and computer become a slide show projector. Money may not be able to buy you love, but it sure can buy you the best computer hardware available... Let's take a look at the X850XTPE and see why this card costs twice as much as second best.

Additionally, you'll get a bonus disc which details the making of the title, includes a sneak peek at the upcoming Assassin's Creed comic book, as well as the game's soundtrack.

GameStop pre-order customers, as previously noted, will also receive a code to download the exclusive Harlequin multiplayer skin.
