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. 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.

Get the answer TheTrueGamer January 31, 2011 2:50:49 AM It does, work just fine. The only difference between brands is the cooling, amount of VRAM, and the clock speeds. 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. 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. Can't find your answer ?
