That's a normal temp for HD4850, even that card can handle up to 100'C... yes, 48XX series cards are generates more heat, but still normal. For safety, just make sure your card is not above 80'C. wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card January 2, 2010 9:32:18 AM How much your budget? Why don't u go for 5XXX series?
