May 17, 2009, 5:01 PM
A little confused.
What is the difference between these two video cards?
Is it just the fan and brand? If so, will the fan make a huge difference on these cards?
SAPPHIRE 100245HDMI Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail
XFX HD-485X-YDFC Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail
Thanks for help!

The fan is first off, with the one pushing the heat outside the case your going to get better cooling in my opinion. Seconds the XFX has a lifetime warranty vs. the two year with the Sapphire.
Honestly it looks like the XFX is the better choice.
