Secondly, yes, dosen't matter if one is "Turbo" and oc'd, as long as it's the same core (the HD 5850) and the same amount of VRAM, you'll be fine. m 0 l mother242 January 31, 2011 2:48:41 AM yeah i know that that particular link is sold, thanks. does anybody have any idea of a place to get one easily and secondly what about cross brand, i think that i have heard that this doesn't work but im kinda getting desperate here. m 0 l Related resources HIS Radeon 5850 fan noise (slipped bearing?) - Forum HIS Radeon HD 5850 - Forum HIS Radeon HD 5850 - Forum HIS H585FN1GD Radeon HD 5850 - Forum HIS ATI RADEON HD 7730 DDR3 compatibility issue - Forum Can't find your answer ?

The actual GPU is the same all across so it should be fine cross-brand. However make sure they have the same #VRAM. Clock speeds are irrelevant. m 0 l mother242 January 31, 2011 2:59:43 AM Right thanks man, that stopped the pain somewhat, all i have to do now is find enough money to buy one. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
