5 out of 5 eggsGreat DX9/10 Video Card!

Pros: -HIS ICEQ cooling
-AMD/ATi HD 48xx Series (800 stream processors)
-Hasn't died on me yet!

Cons: -GDDR3 memory vs GDDR5 on 4870 and 4890
-Slower clockspeeds when compared to 4870 and 4890 (4850 @ 625/[993x2])
-Formerly a mid-range product, the 4850 is now supremely outdone by the 58xx DX11 cards!

Other Thoughts: This card never exceeds 63 C while under load; most video cards I have previously owned have either been fried or simply prone to overheating problems. The HIS is still going strong after 9 months in my non air-conditioned california room! This is a solid video card that can play most all DX9/10 games with ease at reasonable settings, provided it is paired with a decently clocked multicore processor. COH @ 1440 x 900 on highest settings avg ~75-100 fps. GTA IV runs @ 1440 x 900 on high settings avg ~48 fps. GRiD @ avg ~75 fps. Playable!
NOTE: Please do not blame video card for non video card related problems.

My Build:
*Phenom II X3 720 BE ( 4 core unlock, OC'd to 3.0GHz, @1.35v)
*AMD 780G Chipset
*4GB DDR3 1333 (9-9-9-24)
*Windows XP Pro x86 SP3 / Windows Vista Business x86 SP2 / Windows Web Server 2008 x86-64 SP2 / Windows 7 Pro x86-64 (multi-boot)
*550W Power Supply

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice card

Pros: Performance is great, can play ALL games (even Crysis and games like it on moderate settings with decent frame rates). I must say this card would suit anyone since the naked eye cannot see anything past 35fps, this card runs cool IN THE RIGHT CASE. Switched to an Antec 900 and noticed a significant temp drop.

Cons: Very long, requires 6pin power connector (although not really a con).

Other Thoughts: Phenom 9850, 2x2gig Gskill ram, WD Caviar Black 1TB HD, 4850 1GB HIS, Gigabyte 770 mb, OCZ 700watt 4 12v rails, Fatal1y Xi Fi sound card.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Card

Pros: 1GB of memory makes for a forward looking card at the upper mid-range level. The Catalyst Control Center software provided by ATI offers an easy tweaking solution. The cooling system is well thought out and seems to do its job.

Cons: I mostly play WOW and I can't say as I'm seeing that much of an improvement over my previous card in my old build, but then again WOW isn't really a high end graphics kind of game so the comparison may be somewhat moot. Maybe I'll be expanding my gaming repertoire--I suspect my spouse would call that a con.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried any serious video editing yet with this card installed, but maybe I'll do an update once I get around to that.

5 out of 5 eggsPiece of Art

Pros: This card is what it is. As a change, what I would like to point out is that the card (and the packaging that comes with it) is just BEAUTIFUL. They are a piece of art. You can tell how much HIS paid attention to detail. Besides, the build quality of the card is just unbelievable. There is real nice screwdriver in the box as well.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Displays in my screen at 1920x1080 natively as well as games.

Cons: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare lags for about 2-5 secs sometimes with all settings maxed... lowering a few settings should fix that issue. Stormrise plays well with all maxed out. Guild Wars has 2 second lag at times with all maxed out with 60FPS.

Other Thoughts: My specs...

CPU: Phenom II x4 @ 3.0 GHz
Mem: DDR2 800 2x2GB
HDD: 2x500 GB Raid 0
Video: ATI 4850 1GB
LCD: 1920x1080 DVI (2ms)
