Summary: I got this card for 50 bucks and this things is a BEAST, to give you an idea, it runs Crysis on high at 35+. Its backwards compatible with PCIe 1.0 too so if your on a budget or you got an old rig(like I do) GET THIS CARD!
Summary: Simply an amazing piece of technology. I have a very old computer, with single core Pentium 4 cpu, but when I added this graphics card and 4GB of RAM, even my crappy old computer can play modern games on fairly high settings.
Summary: I use this video card in my Home Theater PC. Sure you don't need this much raw power for HD playback but I also game on mine. The biggest factor that lead me to purchase this card is the size. It's about 1" shorter than your typical 4850. This allowed me to use this card in my small HTPC case.
Summary: When buying graphic cards, you always have to look at quality versus price and find the break point. Yes, I could go with the newest card on the market, but next year there will be a newer card, so why pay an extremely high price just to watch it cut in half in a year? The 4850 is a good compromise.
Summary: Bought this card to be able to use Flight Simulators that required more than my current video card was able to produce. I am able to operate the game on the highest settings with no problems. It works great for my purposes.
Summary: well, after many research i choose this card for my gaming rid. after 2 months at test i have to say is absolutely mind breaking powerful. doesnt matter the game or app you use feel free to go for the most extreme quality settings this card wont even notice it.
Summary: The 4850 X2 is a exclusive video card from Sapphire, the card is very huge, but the perforcemance of this video card is huge too. DDR3 and 2GB perfect combination to play games at high resolution with good average frame per seconds! I recommed this card. The price is fine too.
