Great Card

Scott E., Newegg

  • Summary: Upon upgrade I will look at XFX again! Thank you for making a great card! OH BTW, Newegg was great, as usual
  • Pros: I do not review an item unless I have had it for awhile. I updated my computer with this card in 2010. Never had an issue. Card performance had been stellar! I am still using this card, but getting ready to upgrade. Not in a hurry as I know this card will continue to perform.
  • Cons: NONE!

This thing is awesome!

  • Summary: I am the second owner. My friend bought this card back in 2009, he has since retired his rig and sold me this card. I am curious as to whether or not XFX still upholds their double lifetime warranty as it is really hard to find information about it on the website if it still exists.
  • Pros: -An extremely reasonable price at current date considering you buy it second hand. -Great performance, with a light overclock you will find many current titles more than playable (60+ fps) at high graphic settings. -Great atheistic design -I still can't believe how well this performs considering ...
  • Cons: -For some cases/Boards this may be too large, though it isn't really an issue just do your research. -The fan is quite loud at both idle and load and temps were fairly high, however I am sure with some new thermal paste they would drop a significant amount (this card is 5 years old).

  • Summary: no more drivers will be released as far as i know.
  • Pros: nice card, its cheap and gets the job done.
  • Cons: the most recent drivers cause some problems so unless you stick to the drivers on the disk your going to get frustrated. ex not displaying, resolution issues, and more.

Xfx 4850

Darden R., Newegg

  • Summary: I would buy a second to this day if this one died.
  • Pros: I have owned this card for 3 years. I Have never overclocked It but with my q6600 It worked well. With my 930 i7 it works even better. I love this card and think it packs a hell of a kick. Compared to a 5970 or crossfire 5750 I think it looks visually better honestly.
  • Cons: It does run a little hot. I have seen it 60 degrees C. For me that is high.

Was good for 2 1/2 yrs

  • Pros: This card worked nicely with my system, Im not a super gamer but I have a custom pc that is connected to my tv to watch media and play games occasionally. This card did the job for me, while it lasted.
  • Cons: The card lasted 2 1/2yrs and just died the other day. While in the middle of playing a game my entire PC shut off. After a while of troubleshooting and thinking it was the PSU, I found out it was this card that was preventing the system from turning on at all(no fans/lights nothing) Once removed ...
