HIS HD 3850

Hey Guys,

I'm currently running an integrated HD4200 and would like to upgrade. I've come across the HD 3850 by HIS:

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3582041/HIS-ATI-Radeon-HD-3850-256MB-DDR3-PCI-Express-2-0-x16-Graphics-Card/Product.html

Currently i'm playing the Total Ware series (Rome and Medieval 2), Lead and Gold, Football Manager and Battlefield 2.

I own a PS3 and do most of my gaming on there so would this card be suitable for perhaps the newer Romes / less intensive games? Also is HIS a decent manufacturer? Will the card stay cool and how is there warrenty policy?

Cheers

More about 3850
  1. Also is it compatible with Windows 7 64 bit?
  2. What about the rest of your system?
    CPU? RAM? MOBO? PSU? MONITOR? Budget?

    I have 3 HIS cards and never had a problem with them. They're run cool, especially their IceQ version.

    Tell us that first, after that we could make some suggestions for you... :)
  3. Ahh yes. A rookie error omitting those details.

    My CPU is a Athlon II x3 435 running at 3.2, 4gb DDR3 1333mhz, Asus m4a785td-v evo, Ocz stealthstream 500w and an old school led monitor. I run games at 1024 x 768 and 1268x 1024 (around that).

    Budget...50-60 pounds. Once I get a new screen ill invest in a better card but while I'm using this one I just want a boost in performance.
  4. For temporary until you get a bigger screen, right?
    Yes, go on with that HD3850, it MUCH better than the onboard... :)
  5. Yes, for temporary.

    Thanks for the reply, ill order it now!
