Was looking at the other Radeon cards mentioned on this site and decided to have a look at Tom's Hardware and check out what he was recommending. This card get's a thumbs up from Tom though he does mention newer cards have DX11 capability. One of the things that swung it for me is that it fits nicely inside my Dell Inspiron. A lot of the newer cards are longer / wider and need two slots. This one doesn't.

Correct link - other leads to batteries.

Is this better than the GTS 250 posted last week?

Yes a little bit as the GTS250 posted was a green edition (Underclocked edition to you and me:roll:).

You can get a HD5750 512mb for £80 though.

It's marginally faster, but not enough to make much difference.

£80 for a 4850 isn't anything special but the 1GB of memory is nice and if this is available offline from Maplin it's a worthwhile deal.

I am desperate for a decent card to replace the onboard 8400 i have but am just blinded by the choice at around £80.

The GTS250 was £20 cheaper but less memory.

Is a 5750 that much better?

I'm starting to feel a bit dizzy.

The GTS 250 is undoubtedly the best deal if you waiting and seeing whether more will materialise.

I'd personally not go for the 512mb 5750 when all the other 5750s are all 1GB but on a 4850 or GTS 250 where most are 512mb having 1GB I'd consider a nice extra, not an essential. The effect of memory generally isn't benchmarked even in old graphics card roundups though so it's hard to say.

Thank for all the help - i went for an open box HD4850 in the end for £69.99.
