    hello guys


    i am geting a new gpu and was thinking of geting the 4850 from his but reading from the reviews etc is it all that good .

    tell me is 1 4850 comprable to a 8800gtx or 9600gt in performance at high
    resoloutions .

    please help as i have to purchase 1 today and i cant keep on chaning gpu all
    the time ...

    i have a kooler master 460w psu which i just bought , i have a c2d 2.4ghz proc and 1 hdd attached to it , i think the psu should be enough its giving out 35amps on 2 12v rails .

    please help out ,, also the heat issue is there some where i can increase the
    speed of the fan etc so that it remains cooler or some thing .

    bottom line is a 4850 better then a 9600gt period or not or equal to a 8800gtx ..

    thanks

    1 4850 is beyond 8800GTX in performance at high resolutions. Actually... it's beyond even the 9800GTX in some cases (quite a lot? Only a few games that favor nVidia cards perform reasonably well), plus if you overclock the card, you can get even higher performance, maybe at GTX 280 level even.

    most on the review says 4850 is equal or better on 9800GTX and i must say it's true.

    Yeah 4850 is better, only problem is that ATI´s Vista drivers are really bad and broken. So expect some issues, if you use XP, well then its all good.

    Have you experience problems with ATI drivers, a 4800, and Vista?

    Games crash after 5min, all games. The old atikmdag stopped responding issue. On XP, its all working nicely.

    The card isnt broken, if it was it wouldnt work perfectly under XP. I actually like Vista, and would prefer it over XP. My 8800GTX works great with Vista with no problems, but the ATI drivers are not great in vista. If you would know, there are many with same issues as I have in vista. So get youre facts right before you accuse anyone of anything.


    I also hate ppl, who are stupid and say stupid things. But its youre human rights to be that if you want to, but dont spread youre manure here.

    Under Windows Vista, your card produces 10C more in the VRM zone (probably because it has to work more for DX10? No idea...) and if that thing heats up too much, expect crashes and such.

    So here's a fix: reseat your stock heatsink, or put some heatsinks on the VRMs if you are using an aftermarket cooler. Don't underestimate them. I'm having a 120mm and a 80mm blow on mine constantly to keep it cool enough.

    P.S.: VRM overheating is also why some people can't overclock to 700MHz. A slight voltage bump also bumps up the heat drastically... and the sensors are really whack sometimes.

    I never had any kind of problems with Catalyst drivers. Not under XP and not under Vista.
