Absolute rubbish, I have this very card in my PC and the performance is stunning (even more so for this price, I paid much more than that). I haven't noticed any difference in heat output from my old card which was a bog standard factory fitted 256MB ATI.

Brilliant card, great price. Voted hot

Some of us like our PC's quiet :thumbsup:

Pretty decent deal regardless.

Any worthwhile improvement over an X3870X2 1GB?

]Tom's hardware says that it's not. It rates them as in the same performance bracket.

I'll give this a miss then! thanks jmmL

No thanks.

Thread title needs fixing, currently it says GDDR5 when it should be 3

I already have two in CrossfireX, and in benchmarks it's beating my GTX280 out of the water. Also help drastically with my work simulations...

Fixed. I copied the title straight from Novatech's site, so they are to blame for the error

Is this card better than the nVidia GTS 250? Similar prices and power usage.

The GTS250 is a 9800GTX+ with a different badge on it. In ]performance terms it's very similar to the HD 4850, both cards have particular applications where they are a little faster, but overall there's nothing in it. The GTS250 has a slight advantage in power consumption, but it's not a vast saving (just under 13 watts under load in the above link).

Scan have an over-clocked XFX card for less than this, £86.22, - link.
