BFG 8800gts oc vs Sapphire hd 4850

Hi, I was wondering if the BFG 8800gts OC beats the Hd 4850, both are 512 mb. I havent been able to find any benchmarks comparing the two but I hear good things about both. For $80 will the 8800gts beat or be close to the hd 4850 which is over $100?

  1. The 4850 performs equal to a 9800GTX/GTX+/GTS250 and will run slightly cooler/use slightly less power than a 8800GTS 512mb.

    The 8800GTS performs equal to a 4770. The 4850 performs maybe 10% better than an OCed 8800GTS 512.

    Is the $30 worth the difference?
  2. Thanks for the info, I prolly would not spend the extra $30 because I dont play too many games. In your opinion how do you think the 8800gts would play with crysis? because if its good, then the card is probably a good deal for $80

    Thanks
  3. That 8800GTS is $90 and out of stock. Here is an HD4850 for $100 with free shipping;

  4. did not see that lol, thanks for the info
  5. This is a new surge of 4850's at this price point. Had not been available for 100 IN a long while.
  6. ^ Yep, in that case get the 4850 for $100. :D
  7. If he was going to spend $20 more he would be better off with an HD5750.
  8. I was looking at that sapphire 512 cuz it was $100, but would the 1gb even be worth it because I'm playing on a 1366x768 reso and what I've read is that 1gb performs better at higher reso? And my friend has a sapphire and his is still really good for being 2 years old and it hasnt crapped out at all
  9. would the power color be better then the sapphire? from the info given the powercolor has a higher memory clock for being the same price

    sense when can you find a 5750 at $120? I thought it avged like 140 or something and for 140 i'd find a 4870 512mb/1gb.
  11. They've been on sale frequently for $125-130.
  12. would the hd 4850 be better as a 512mb or would it benefit from a whole 1gb
