Thanks for replying!
I'll settle for Palit then. Well, to be honest, I was actually leaning towards them to begin with but was waiting if you can share your experiences with these specific cards. I like their approach better when it comes to cooling the 4850 (compared to Sapphire's). I forgot to post the pictues on the original post though
Where I am at, the difference between this 4850 and a ref 4870 is $80-100 US.
