Sapphire Vs. Asus

Hi all,

Im planning on buying the HD5850,
and the Asus one is a bit more expensive,
are there any significant differences between them both?
and what is the recommended one of those?

Thanks,
NG.

  1. The ASUS one allows for Overclocking and even has a voltage tweak program to encourage overclocking and it is all covered under their 3-year warranty.

    I usually buy Sapphire cards as Sapphire is a great vendor, but this time around, i went with ASUS and i am VERY happy i did.
  2. Both brands are really good ones.

    Sapphire usually likes to give a little love HSF wise and Asus app wise. Both are very good all around, so get the cheaper one IMO. Tweaking tools are very universal among a line of cards, but Asus has his own tools, btw.

    Cheers!
  3. I suppose another fact to consider would also be aftersales support. Depending on where you are in the world, after sales could be instant to non-existent. You'd have to check with local retailers/distributors for that though. And it's also brand loyalty at the end of the day. I've got Sapphire stickers all around the house =)
  4. Ive allways gone with sapphire and I did with my 5870, still have no problems. Realistically you cant go wrong with either.
  5. Both are very good brands.

    I would have gone with the cheaper one.
