If you look at newegg you'll see that Asus, Sapphire and Visiontek have 5 eggs for their HD 4850 and more reviews than the rest.

I guess that means they did good work there.

Personally, I've used Sapphire cards in the past and I have no complaints. They weren't HD 4850 though.

Sorry to hear you're poor :( 

Are you in Canada by any chance?

Heh.. seems all the HD 4850's are going to be $155 after rebate. Basically there is about 8 video cards with free shipping.

Can't really say whats the best, or even best customer service if you have problems. I haven't called any manufacture for any of my stuff.

sry stranger for wrong forum post, it always confuses me that GPUS isnt under compoent. i wont do it again.

good news is i went for the saphire card.
i dont live Canada (thanks god) i live in the UK, where we get ripped off for our hardware. it cost me £120 ($240 +-5).
