u know unfortunatly im living in ( IRAN ) . highest price of 5850 is ASUS & GIGA in here . i was looking for cheaper but not worse 5850 , if its posible to find such thing then ill dont go for ASUS . because its ( let me tell u with numbers ) 400 & xfx is 360 i found Sapphire Vapor X 310 but prices are diffrente somewhere say 350 , & other where they priced it about 335 . so just wanna know if there is abailable option in 5850 BRANDS which is cheap & doesnt have Perfromance diffrence . did i make it more clear , sorry if i cant tell u what i was meaning ?
because i'm sure that i can OC it by myself then i wouldn't get OCed version, just get normal version and you can OC it by yourself.
Seriously, HD5850 is FAST enough to play any games with decent setting at high resolution...
u know , i am not sure i can do this risk , I have never OCed any hardwares . should i spend a Classes about it or i can OC it by my self so easy ? Ok ok .. what if i cant OC it ? will OC ed version be better option , or natrual brands are better any way?
i dont think so , because i believe that single 5850 can provide me because i am suing 1440 REZ .but i tough that OCed version is much better . but if single 5850 can solve my needs then why i should get OCed version which make more heat ?
Actually he should get the 5850 if he can afford it. I have the 5770 and i must say i wish i had a 5850. I can not play a few games with the settings i want.
Yes the vapor-x is a good card. It probably has 10Mhz more then the regular witch stands for nothing but the cooling is one of the best out there. Depending if you find a brand that offers more warranty and is good with customer service get that one.
My 5770 is vapor-x. But it is not a card that you can change the voltage of the GPu so it has a limit to how far you can overclock it. But in your case that should not matter.
