Also, which one has less heat problems. I've heard that 4870 overheats.
Which do I get?
I got a Core 2 Quad 9450 Gigabyte EP45-UD3P 4GB (2x) Memory Patriot 1066Mhz 320 GB WD HDD 500W Power Supply (forgot the brand) 2 Fans
I'm planning to bring this computer to the Philippines and its pretty hot there (90 - 95 degrees F). I want to buy a graphics card that would be durable even in hot weathers. I'm an avid computer user, I can go online for about 6 - 10 hours a day. I don't want my graphics card to be failing since i can't return these video cards once I'm at the Philippines.
More about4870 4850 crossfire
the cross fire will eat more power and the heat will be more in cross fire....i dont think the PSU will be enough for Xfire....My opinion is u go for the 4870.....u may have a even better option in buying the 5850....
