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.
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.
Excerpt: 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).
Excerpt: 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.
A great graphics card for most modern games- dramatically improved my gaming experience!

Excerpt: I bought the EAH4850 to try and play so modernish games, such as GTA IV, and it doesn't disappoint. Previously, while using the internal graphics card on my pc, GTA IV was unplayable and other most other games could only be run on minimum settings. With the 4850 I can increase the settings on those games almost up to maximum.
Excerpt: 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.
having played games with other cards and then this one you can certainly tell the difference

Excerpt: When I bought my husband Flight Simulator X for his birthday it turned out even more expensive as, to get it to play at its best he would need a better Graphics card! After looking at every Graphics card in shops and more so on the internet he decided that the best one for the job would be the ASUS EAH4850/HTDI. This was because the other one was a cheap qand chearful one no really for good games.
