ATI Radeon 4850

razua77, Ebay
17 February 2010
  • Summary: I decided to buy this over the Nvidia 9800GTX+ by being influenced from a tech forum that had the 4850 listed above the 9800 in overall quality. The card itself is good and did increase my graphical performance well over my original 9500GT. However for some reason the 4850 will not adjust to my tv's 1366x768 setting automatically like the 9500GT was able to do.

Sapphire ATi 4850x2 2gb Review

jeremy_c_h, Ebay
9 February 2010
  • Summary: Pros: Powerful card, great value. Usually scales well, which can sometimes be an issue in crossfire. Allows crossfire on a single pci-e x16 motherboard. Performs about on par with a Radeon 5850 and better than a gtx 285, which can cost $100+ more. There are two versions of the card - one with 2x512mb gddr5 and one with 2x1gb. This is the latter. Cons: Drivers are sometimes flaky, as they aren't made officially by ATi.

Good card at a good price.

  • Summary: Purchased this card when my nvidia 8800 GT died in a storm. I've only had it for about a month now, but from what I can tell so far it's a solid card. It's quiet, and doesn't run hot, and it is over clockable with no issues or configuration tweaks. I only have it at a 5% OC, as I don't like to stress my equipment with massive overclocks.

Too big to fit....

K. Tatiparthi, Amazon
28 May 2009
  • Summary: The Graphics card is nice and powerful but its size is too big to even fit in a full tower chassis. I had to cut the hard drive bays with a hack saw to fit it into the PCIE slot of the motherboard. Just keep its size in mind and be prepared to whack your chassis if you want to get this. Other than the size, I play a lot of crysis and have never seen an issue with the graphics.

Good Card, Great Value For Gamers

Daniel B. Glover "MadCow", Amazon

  • Summary: After reading more in depth reviews from Tom's and Arstechnica I decided to purchase this card. It is a big card but not that much larger than most and measures at ~11 1/8" from the plate to the rear of the card. I had to do a slight modification to my old Lanboy Pro case but nothing major, just removed the aluminum HDD bay and placed my drives in the unused FDD bays. One other thing to note is that the noise level is not that loud.

Very good jack of all trades sort of card and is capable of playing some of the latest FPS games.

  • Excerpt: I bought this card to replace my 6600GT. It was a sound investment because it allowed me to play DX9 and DX10 games on high settings - I was big on Counter Strike Source. The 512mb memory handles all the textures thrown at it by HL2 games and handles bloom or HDR effects with ease.

Worth the money, but if you can get a slightly better model

  • Excerpt: The Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 is a great Graphics card and is made especially for extreme gaming. This card is comes with a standard S-video to component splitter, and a 6 pin PCI-e to molex power converter along with whole load of game DVDs if you get the bundle. The bundle gives you some sample game demos so you can try out and see how good the card actually is. The card is slightly redesigned from its previous versions with a new heatsink and better fan.
