HIS 4850 Vs. Sapphire 4850 Tags: Graphics Cards Sapphire Graphics Last response: February 23, 2009 11:02 PM in Graphics & Displays Share John Von Trapp February 23, 2009 1:18:36 PM I am upgrading my GFX Card, and am currently torn between two, and need some advice. HIS ATI HD4850 IceQ4 Turbo X (Overclocked to 685/2200MHz) (512 MB) or the Sapphire Radeon HD4850 (Stock speed : 625 HMz/ 993MHz) (1GB) The HIS is $299 AUD and the Sapphire is $330 AUD Which one am I going to get better performance out of? The overclocked card with less memory, or the slower card with more? I will be playing a whole range of games with this card. System specs are: E8500@3.16 GHz (Stock speed, will probably overclock soon) 8GB Corsair RAM 500GB HDD Gigabyte GA-985P-S3 More about : 4850 sapphire 4850 rescawen February 23, 2009 2:00:06 PM his should be faster and his ice q and cool and quiet 2 If you buy a cheap GTX280 it would fit your system very well meodowla February 23, 2009 3:12:40 PM If i were to decide on both, i would've gone for 'HIS ATI HD4850 IceQ4 Turbo X'.
