    Still, the difference is small, and not really noticeable. So, it's a matter mail in rebates. 4850 is either $10 more or $10 less, depending on wether you count in mir. There is also issue of heat. 4850 runs hotter and vents hot air inside the case. If you have a well ventilated case, 4850 is fine, and cost $10 less after mir. If not, 9800gtx+.
  2. What 4850 did you get?

    There are some variants from a lot of vendors out there. Hopefully you got a 2 slot HSF version. Otherwise, look for the way of the fan fix. That card really heat things up XD

    Esop!
  3. i got the palit's non-oced 4850. it looks ugly but i think its the best one.

    oh cmon... turn up the AA and watch the 9800gtx+ die

    but yeah, the performances go back and forth with every review... (not with the AA on though)


    Die? It's merely 2 fps lower than gtx280 at high 2560x1600 AA + AF, in one game, and outperforms gtx280 significantly in every other setting, while costing $150+ less. :sarcastic:
  7. both perform very well.
    i would buy which ever one is cheaper.
  8. I just finally replaced my standby 7800GTX 256MB with the Palit 4850 ... it is a two slot card. So far I am happy in that I can finally turn AA on in games. CoD IV never looked better.
