A good price and spec card
Member Name: pudder
Advantages: Low price. Good specifications. Runs well.
When time came to replace my graphics card I asked around my friends, and read reviews and consistently heard good things about the ATI HD4850. At around £110 it was a low-mid range price, with many sources reporting that it was performing similarly to £500+ cards.
Once I had settled on the HD4850, I used dabs.com to search for a card. Although there were cheaper cards, I chose the ASUS as it is a brand I am familiar with and trust to give good quality.
When it arrived and I installed it in my machine I was suprised at how much better than my old card (ATI x1950 Pro) it was. It can happily run almost anything I throw at it on full settings.
I have used it to run:
Call of Duty 4
Call of Duty 5
Guitar Hero III
All without any problems at all.
A really good card, at a really good price.
Summary: Good card, especially for the price.
