The Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 beat the 1GB GTX 260 quite soundly in every test. The overclock gave me more of a performance boost than I would have expected from a 5% overclock, in all but one test the gains were significant.
Pros: – The highest performance yet for a midrange gaming card, – Twoheatpipe cooler is very effective, – Silent fan, – Even a small overclock gave a significant performance boost

Pros: Excellent value for money, good performance
Cons: Less well-equipped for future use than more expensive cards
