  1. 4890
  2. Brand matter?
  3. only if your really worried about support and a good warranty. XFX is generally considered the best for their customer support and double lifetime warranty.
  4. xfx is reccomended and saphire vapor x and toxic msi cyclone not too bad as well
  5. I just bought the HIS HD4890 from newegg (1GB), and it performs like a beast. Runs basically everything on über high. Sadly, I think that card is out of stock at Newegg right now. It's like 160 after MIR.
    The card feels a little flimsy, but I think it's sturdy enough, and the performance is great.
  6. Does the first link I posted (sapphire) have hdmi audio out?
  7. SAPPHIRE 100269HDMI Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

    Ports
    HDMI 1 x HDMI
    DisplayPort 1 x DisplayPort
    DVI 1 x DVI
  8. Yeah I got that, but does it produce audio through the hdmi port, I know some gpu don't. But I herd the 4870's from sapphire produced audio from dvi to hdmi..
  9. if you do some bargain shopping you can pick up either 2 4870s or a 4870x2 . I just picked up a 4870x2 off ebay for $210
  10. @ Nekko: All the 4XXX cards send sound through the HDMI cable through their built in sound chip.
  11. thanks man!
  12. which card should I get guys? The Sapphire or the HIS
  13. Best answer
    I personally would go with a 5770. Performs like a 4870 which should be plenty for "some gaming". Supports dx11 so newer games will be supported, uses less power, gives off less heat and has more overclock headroom (40nm). Its selling around 170$ so its cheaper.

  14. Not to throw myself to the other side, but the GTX 275 is a decent option as well... but given what has been looked at on this list, id say the Sapphire 4890 would be my choice. I almost got one before i found my 295, and I would have probably ventured into the 5000 series had i not found it... gotta love that GDDR5
