HIS 4850 Vs. Sapphire 4850

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

  1. his should be faster and his ice q and cool and quiet 2 :D

    If you buy a cheap GTX280 it would fit your system very well :D
  2. If i were to decide on both, i would've gone for 'HIS ATI HD4850 IceQ4 Turbo X'. Coz, it is meant to be cool.
    Anyways i'm using a different one..

    MSI HD4850 with dual Stock Cooler.
