I'm planning to buy a Graphics card. So i've went through lots of reviews. Now i'm a bit confused.
Pls help me decide choose one. Let me say, i'm not looking for the costlier one(like Nvidia GTX200 series, Dual types or X2 etc.). I'm not sure if Ati or Nvidia, which one is best for my need. Only intention is to get on with neat gaming.
That is true for any 4850, not just from one particular manufacturer. However, stock reference design 4850s generate a lot of heat. If you want to overclock it, you'll need one with a non-reference design cooler, or you'll want to swap the stock cooler for an aftermarket cooler yourself.
Here are a couple that come with dual slot coolers:
hmm.. well I actually have a second opinion. The type of ram that 4850 uses is GDDR3 while 4870 uses GDDR5. So Even though the GPU is technically the same you won't really reach a 4870 level. It's more like a 4860.
But for a 19" monitor 4850 is more than enough. Enjoy.
