I was kinda concerned that the BIOS/memory timings might be different between 2 different manufacturer's cards - what do you know about that? | Report abuse szala11 August 31, 2009 8:23:07 PM No, it is the same on every stock 4850, just don't buy a factory overclocked one and there will be no problem | Report abuse mdemarco August 31, 2009 8:27:48 PM Excellent.
