Still runs perfectly

  • Summary: i don't know what this driver problem is people are having, running latest catalyst and it works. OVERALL: great card for budget, will play any game you throw at it, just don't max it out.
  • Pros: great card! Maxes out a lot of games and runs great, never had a problem with it when I updates my PSU.
  • Cons: can't max out all games, I guess that's because its single slot and is getting to the point where I'll have to replace it. Don't like the design AT ALL.

Yup, it's the Mobility Radeon 4850

  • Summary: Pretty terrible, really, the way this thing was misrepresented by XFX - I certainly don't blame NewEgg. I'm only posting to share a tip, learned the hard way after the newer AMD Drivers kept giving me white-screen lockups that I could not figure out until coming back here.
  • Pros: It's still alive
  • Cons: Sold as a Radeon HD 4850, but built with the Mobility Radeon 4850 GPU.

A good card for casual gaming.

  • Summary: Have not had an opportunity to try out the HDMI support (my monitor does have HDMI input but didn't come with a cable for it, so I just stick with DVI). I should also bring up that their rebate call center is the best I've ever had to complain to.
  • Pros: Card was easy to install; started working right away and didn't even need me to manually set up any drivers in Windows 7. (And the driver Windows auto-installs occasionally gets patches through Windows Update.) Haven't noticed any added noise from the onboard fan. Actual performance is excellent....
  • Cons: The driver they provide has a control panel app that supposedly lets you tweak visual settings for games, overriding the game's own settings. Doesn't seem to actually do anything. I couldn't force antialiasing on a game that didn't have such an option in its menu, for example. Also bear in mind t...

Driver issue is it's downfall..

  • Summary: If you did not know better you would think the card was bad when running newer drivers. I have the latest BIOS update on the card and it does nothing to fix any issues. You must run an older driver and forcibly stop Windows and CCC from automatically updating to a newer version.
  • Pros: Good card at a good price point. The 4850 is still powerful enough these days to do a great job gaming.
  • Cons: This card, as others have mentioned, has issues with the latest few driver updates. 11.6 seemed to work before but now I am down to 11.5 and all is well.

Great Video/gaming card

Randall L., Newegg

  • Summary: Team Fortress 2 is an amazing game and its free on steam! GET IT
  • Pros: The card is great for gaming, i can run just about every game i want on high to medium settings. Easy install but i have a small case so it was a pretty tight fit but hey i got it in! :D
  • Cons: The card runs pretty hot when gaming and its sorta loud. Makes a weird nose when gaming and after playing an hour of crysis 2 my card was already at 70c but other then that this card is PERFECT!

A Good Card

  • Summary: I have had mine for about 5 months now running on my HEC 585W PSU and have had no issues. I can max BC2 and L4D2 out on my 23' monitor. I also run my PC 24/7 and have no issues. I see that all these new cards that ship out are a bunch of bad ones obviously.
  • Pros: 1GB GDDR3, 256Bit, 800 Shaders and I payed $50 for mine. This card is more powerful then a HD 5670. Not by much, but is. it also cheaper.
  • Cons: Does run alittle warm, but not bad for this card. Well within specs. Older HD 4850's would idle between 70-80 and peek around 85-95. Those were norm temps. Mine idles around 50-53 and peek at around 75-80 gaming. And I have stock CPU cooler too. So my insides heat up pretty bad. Once I get a bett...
