Versatile, but not such a great performer.

  • Summary: This is a great solution for middle to low end systems. Even though it was great in its time, it never filled my expectations. the performance has always been half way of what this chip could deliver. Only its sibbling equipped with DDR5, could unleash it, the 4870. but again, overall it fits to most of the needs in a budget.

AMAZING..!!

  • Summary: I am very happy with this card. It will fit in a mid-size case with a micro-board. It does require additional power but works fine for me with a 350 watt supply. For a little more I could have gone with the HD 4870 but that is a whole different animal. This card is just fine for regular on-line gaming and stuff. I think this is the card for most peoples needs.

get a gtx 260 instead if you cannot find this card for 60$ or less.

  • Summary: This is an excellent buy for 60$ I personally would rather spend another 15-20$ for a gtx 260 but the customer had a budget that was really tight and this fit the bill. This card seems very thin and does not look like much when you look at it but works well for the money.

  • Summary: Video card took one month to arrive. The screws to the back plate were all loose so I had to screw them back on. The card works fine.

Exactly what I needed

V. Saunders, Amazon
17 February 2010
  • Summary: My previous card was Radeon X1050. It played Oblivion decently at really low settings. I eventually needed a better card to run Street Fighter 4. This card runs both of those, and also Fallout 3, at pretty high settings. I recommend it if you want to play your games without being an elitist snob for superfluous eye candy. Jade Empire and Tomb Raider (yes, I play that!) Anniversary no longer work.

GREAT value

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this item as a replacement for a previously purchased video card, whose fan suddenly started making the most horrendous noise, which could not be addressed without removing the cheap plastic fan (which would make the card run dangerously hot). Before I say anything more I want everyone to know that I am an AMD/ATi fan. I don't buy NVIDIA or other graphics cards. This card runs extremely quietly, and is not too hot for a large case.

HD 4850 Lives Up To Hype

M. Achivida, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: This graphics card (GC) is totally worth the money invested, it is in the higher end of the ATI GC series out right now, the all new 4800 series. The only misleading thing about the description about the GC is that it takes up 2 whole slots vs. only 1. The fan built onto it takes up more space then it should, but the up side is that it keeps this thing running cool, smooth, and puring like a kitten.

Gute Gamer Karte

C. Jeske, Amazon
31 August 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe die beiden Karten (ich habe gleich 2 gekauft für Crossfire) seit etwa 1 Monat im Betrieb. Warum gebe ich nur 4 Sterne? Ich bin doch überrascht wie laut die beiden Karten sind. Ich hatte davor 2 x 3870er mit einem besonderen Kühlsystem (Heatpipe). Die Kühlleistung ist ok (noch nicht übertaktet, aber braucht man nicht, selbst FarCry 2 auf Extrem ruckelt nicht). Die Karten machen genau das was sie sollen, ein sehr schönes Bild auf meinem 24 Zoll Schirm.
