The cooler on the XFX 4830 and 4850 is good from what ive read. Also the 4830 is better than the 8800GT/9800GT. The 4830 can overclock up to 4850 performance if you can keep temperatures under control. Honestly I would get the 4830.
yeah its for my 2nd system i did not know ncix was canadian lol. i am just use to newegg. i would rather spend the extra $20-30 on the card and get a lifetime warranty plus i can overclock and it will be covered.
i like to have it. because i might keep it for about a year or 2. also i want to add a aftermarket cooler. plus with xfx and evga you get american tech support not indiana where you cant understand them.
yer money, but most cards have a couple year warranty, if yer gonna spend all that extra plus aftermarket cooler you mite as well go for something faster.
Yeh , its hard to understand them Indiana people lol
i found a good deal on a VisionTek 4850 for $110 shipped so i might jump on that. but i like buying new parts not used lol. the reasoning for me saying lifetime warranty is because i can sell it for cheap and the person who buys it will get a lifetime warranty as well. plus i dont think other warrantys like powercolor or them support overclocking. and i think they can tell if you o/c
