Tags: Radeon Asus Gigabyte ATI Graphics Last response: July 29, 2010 7:16 AM in Graphics & Displays Share belltollsforthee July 29, 2010 5:35:34 AM Well, now im looking to only buy one card and another 5850 the next year I want something that runs cool and of good quality I have been told the Asus Direct CU is best BUT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... now, is it worth it? for the price difference is it worth going with Asus? i have no problem, i can wait til the Asus are available and i plan on buying a second one in about a year or so will the Gigabyte run cooler? Will the Asus just out perform the Gigabyte? which would be easier to over clock? which is of better quality or are they almost the same? Thanks for the help on a side note: seeing that the Asus is selling out is kinda assuring in the Asus name More about : ati 5850 Lmeow a b Ĉ ASUS July 29, 2010 6:00:30 AM Well, each GPU overclocks differently, the Gigabyte may overclock better if they binned the chips for overclocking. Don't see a reason to go for the Asus if Gigabyte's cooler outperforms it for less. You may want to have a look at the Sapphire Vapor-X HD 5850 which has very good cooling and overclocking performance. m 0 l belltollsforthee July 29, 2010 6:04:30 AM Lmeow said:Well, each GPU overclocks differently, the Gigabyte may overclock better if they binned the chips for overclocking.

Hmm, turns out that they limit the voltage on gigabyte and some ppl are having problems with bios and fans set at default speeds that can't be changed, looks like an Asus for me then m 0 l Related resources ATI 5850 vs GTX465 Which is better? - Forum Core i3 + Ati HD 5850 or Core 2 quad + Ati HD 5770, which will be best for 1440x - Forum ATI RADEON HD 5850 and PSU RASURBO 450w - Forum How much improvement in games from an ati 5850 to a gtx 770 - Forum ATI radeon 7730 vs 5850? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Go for the Asus then if you're planning to do greater overclocks. Mind you, I'm pretty sure it's possible to flash the Gigabyte HD 5850 BIOS to an ASUS HD 5850 BIOS. m 0 l belltollsforthee July 29, 2010 7:16:19 AM hmmm, very tempting..... then there is this emotional part of me, that likes the fact that the mobo, screen, disc drive, and possibly my GPU are all of the same brand but 60 dollars is sure a lot of a difference m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
