i saw that a couple of minutes ago, it is cheap but the reason why its cheap is the 5 series cards are due this month, no point buying this i think. lukewarm for me. according to legitreview it will be released on 22nd spetember in the usa and 23rd for uk legitreviews.com/new…71/ im sure we can wait a week.

Well there is, as the 5 series cards start at minimum 3 times the price!

well, when 5 series are released 4 series will drop even further me thinks.

Cant see a 4850 which will run all the latest games on more than decent settings going for much less than £70 anytime in the near future.

It's a deal for this spec and version, which is hot. Heat added.

but thanks for the info ref. the newer spec coming shortly, this helps us make informed decisions.

Since I heard about 3D gaming I lost all interest in ATI cards. Don't get me wrong ATI are fantastics cards but unless they come up with something similar to NVIDIA 3D vision or better I will be on the green side. I currently have an NVIDIA 8800GT which is the oldest card that work with the 3D Vision, I am just waiting for a bigger 120hz monitor (22' is too small for me).

is this card better than a 9800 gtx ?

9800GTX is the top of the range of the 9000 series so you shuold go for the top of the range of the 4000 series (i.e. the 4890 or 4870). I think for you the upgrade is not that great so not worth it in my opinion. In fact I am almost sure that if any it would be a downgrade or you will stay the same

This guide should give you a better idea

Get urself an ATi 4870. Nothing in Nvidia can touch it price/performance wise.

Well I think it has hit it's bottom. As TSMC cuts back on RV770 and RV790 fabrication to make way for the new 5 series GPU's then this will stabilise the price and already you may have noticed a price rise on the 4870 and 4890's in the last week. However it is expected that the price of DDR3 and DDR5 is still expected to drop a little.

more ATI 5 series cards will be arriving in october and november legitreviews.com/new…83/
