Most Critical Review

So far bad new drivers but stable "very" old drivers.

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 4850 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100273L
SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 4850 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100273L

Pros: The card completely blew away a Geforce 240 that I returned. The benchmarks were doubled and worth (after the rebate) the difference in price of about $6. I got it for mild gaming and it should work find with that.

Cons: The new 10.* drivers on the ATI site cause my screen to go intermittenly black and I have to reset. This happens ONLY when I am watching a web video of any type. I know the card works because the Windows Update drivers do not cause this issue and they are ver. 8. I am still looking for a solution and ATI has not owned up to this as an issue yet. Otherwise would give the card 5 eggs for cost compared to performance if the drivers weren't bad.

Overall Review: Running Windows 7 32bit. AMD Athlon 64 6000+
