Yes it is perfect for Cod unless you play 1920 x 1080 or bigger .Will only struggle with Crysis/Crysi warhead,

The best config from toms hardware seems to say Two Radeon HD 4890 cards in CrossFire Configuration are a tie for top spot. So looks like a hot deal!

its OK noise wise, I had two 7600 silent cards in my PC and yes it does make more noise - but everything would, but not so I am naffed off, and I like a very quiet PC, you can also control the fan via the software to a limited extent.

Hmmm... I'm very tempted by this. The 512Mb XXX version is available for a couple of pounds more. WOuld this be the better buy? I assume the 1GB of RAM is overkill? I run at a max resolution of 1680x1050.

OK, I have a 8800GT, Would I be better buying another one and running them in SLi or would a card like this , or another Card uo to £150 be better?

personally I'd get the 1GB version and clock this at the other cards XXX speeds
1Gb might offer gains at that res but unless you are willing to OC it then you'd still be better with the xxx version

Cheers for the reply!:thumbsup: I must admit I've always had Nvidea cards so I think I'll stick with them. I see there's quite a few to choose from and wide price range.

Any one you think I should go for around the £100-£150 mark?

Much cheaper than the Asus, just as good a card.

I think I'm going to buy this, it looks like a great value card which is up to date. Any objections?

Id just buy another 8800GT in sli if I were you Its what I have done.

Lol, 1 of them just sold and the price is back to it's original £86.99... Ebuyer sure does suck!

XFX is not so good with ATi cards. I bought the 4850 512mb version from novatech and it was faulty with crysis crashing and furmark. I searched the net and many people had the issue with the 4850 from XFX. I returned it ofcourse. The performace was good except for crysis on gamer @ 1680x1050 it stutters so I I am getting the 4890 tomorrow. Good card for the price.

The fan is also sort of noisy, but atleast its stays cool

bargin for 1gb, wish i waited a month or two ago and got that instead of a 512 4870 for a 102 quid
