Summary: I don't get it. Watch a movie in Itunes on a second display and I get hardware failure after a year. Long term I guess it can't handle the load on a Vista 64 bit system with 12gb of RAM. I stepped it up to a new GTX that hums along with no problem but at triple the price but half the temperature.
Summary: This card is fantastic I get to play almost every game i want to at max settings. You can play WoW, TF2, Borderlands, Fallout 3, and more games offered through steam with max settings pretty much. If you aren't looking for the latest and greatest which you shouldn't unless you are insanely rich a midrange card like this 4850 is perfect! It's small and powerful. It does get quite hot when in use but if you have a case with good airflow which most cases do you are fine.
Summary: I bought a set of these cards to use in CrossfireX based on [...] recommending these cards as the best all around bang for the dollar. They were strong enough to push my games in 1920x1080 with some reduced quality or 1600x1050 with everything turned on. I don't know why, but these cards would not overclock one bit, not even 5mhz and my computer would instantly show a BSOD. These are quite cards that do run very hot those.
Asus EAH4850/HTDI/512M: A Solid Performer In The Upper Mid Range
15 September 2010
Summary: This Asus ATi 4850 512 MB gfx card is a solid performer in the upper mid range of 4000 series cards. It can play all of the newest games as of 2009, with most at respectable framerates even with higher detail. You'll notice that, however, because of the memory - very high resolutions and textures will result in a performance hit. So far I've only experienced this playing games with extensive modding and customisation though (Oblivion/Fallout 3/UT3).
Pros: Fast, Well Priced at £75, Still Competitive in 2010
Cons: Not An Overclocker, Can Get Hot, No Rear Fan Exhaust For Two Slot Card
Summary: Basically I fried my desktop computer by not having a surge protector, so with lessons learned (an upcoming surge protecter review is iminent), I set out to replaces all my smokey hardward. I was initialy drawn to the Asus EAH4850/HTDI/512M as it was within my budget price range and met the requirement I needed to run my software.
Pros: Nice price for a competent graphics card. Easy to install.
Summary: When time came to replace my graphics card I asked around my friends, and read reviews and consistently heard good things about the ATI HD4850. At around £110 it was a low-mid range price, with many sources reporting that it was performing similarly to £500+ cards. Once I had settled on the HD4850, I used dabs.com to search for a card. Although there were cheaper cards, I chose the ASUS as it is a brand I am familiar with and trust to give good quality.
