I just installed a new graphic card, could someone tell me how can I install the drivers for Sapphire HD 4870 GDDR 512 ?

Unfortunately I only see Windows driver on their official website.

There are multiple drivers, a opensource one which probably is already going under the hood if your ubuntu version is not too old. The other option is to install the clumsy and often bugged/outdated driver via synaptics (search for fglrx or catalyst)

It's a branded ATI/AMD card, you can use AMD's drivers.
