Supply - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) RAM Want to replace this card: ASUS EAH4850/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card It's overheating and I rather buy a new card than buy an after-market cooler. What I usually use comp for: - playing WOW - Editing videos - HTPC on a 52" 1080p TV I don't want to bottleneck the thing, but I also would like to upgrade the GPU (what's the use in spending money it's not an upgrade?)

HD5850 or GTX460 is a good upgrade from HD4850... m 0 l Anonymous a b U Graphics card October 18, 2010 11:54:26 AM Sorry. Forgot to specify a budget. I guess my cap would be ~$200, but would rather it be closer to $100. WOW doesn't take much. The 4850 plays it on ultra @ 60fps just fine. But the video editing is alittle more taxing, especially with HD footage. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer wa1 a c 189 U Graphics card October 18, 2010 12:56:41 PM Well, for $100 then i suggest you stay with your HD4850, cause with $100 you can't buy a card that more powerful than HD4850... A proper upgrade from HD4850 is HD5770 or GTX460, below that card then it's not consider as upgrade... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
