Powercolor radeon HD 4850 is on sale for $90 after 10$ rebate. Is there any reason I shouldn't get this over the 5750 (about 30-40$ more). I read the the HD4850 is just as fast as the HD5750 but maybe not as low power sonsumption. Any thoughts? I am not into gaming and not interested in crossfire at the moment. Could I not get another in the future and crossfire if I want to?
The 5750 is slightly faster with DX11 support, the 4850 (DX11) slower but only slightly. In this situation I would buy the 4850 beacuse its almost
as fast whilst being $40 cheaper.
If you are not a gamer aint these cards overkill? If you are not a gamer shouldnt you be happy with onboard video or a cheap 5850 or 5570.
If you are not playing games why are you concerned about crossfire which enhances gaming experience?
