Hello there, I'm building ADP (allround desktop pc); motherboard Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P, processor AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition, memory OCZ Platinum XTC 2 x 2GB DDR3 1333MHz CL7 kit, harddisk 2x Seagate 7200.12 500GB 16MB but what videocard around 150 Euros. The ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB or the ASUS Radeon 4870 HTDI Matrix 512MB? Both cards are powerful and suitable for office as well as high quality games. Who can make the choice for me?
they are the same, the only difference is the cooler. The ASUS likely uses a non-reference cooler (a better one then what normally comes with it) while the AIT either uses the reference or a different non-reference.
Other then that they are the same thing, other then the circuit boards might be different colors.
