Hello,
Time to replace my 2 ATI Radeon HD 4800 series Cards. My system is older but works for my gaming purposes. It has Intel DX58SO motherboard complete running Windows Vista 32 with an 800 w power supply. The 2 ATI cards have always been run in CrossFire. What would be a good replacements?

If it works for your gaming purposes, why do you want to upgrade it?

What's your budget?

The cards need replacing, 1 now is not working, other, barely. They are 4 yrs old and have served well. Budget? Less than $150 would be good.

TYVM for your info regarding replacing my 2 ATI Radeon 4850's. As you can tell, this is not my forte, but I am comfortable with changing video cards as the ATI's always required removing and dusting almost monthly. I've decided to go with the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked, it seems to be a good fit with my equipment. From what I am reading, it seems to run cooler than the ATI. That was the problem with my 2 cards, always getting hot even tho the case they are in is the Cooler Master with fans everywhere.

560ti is really a good choice but i don't think it cost $150, ati 4800 series tend to run hot so no surprise there, with 560 ti you don't have to deal with heat , micro stuttering, driver, power so it's really a nice upgrade, and i'm soon getting a 560ti also so we kinda on the same boat here mate.( there are many version of gtx 560 so make sure it's a ti , 560SE<560<560ti<560 ti 448 cores, with the SE being slowest and 448 cores fastest)
