They are nice cards (it looks really nice) but I cannot say I am happy with it. I tried to play crysis and no go card cannot handle it This is my first try at nvidia since the 6800 gt I had several years ago. I am pretty sure it will be in the FS section as I get it back from the RMA Going back to the Saphire 3850 that I got for $39 shipped I am not a fanboy of any sort I just though that this card was the best value for the money at this time (the card is comparable to a stock 280 according to the reviews, but reviews did not mention the heating problems this card seem to have). Hopefully the replacement will be a lot better.
I bought an XFX HD4890, which turned out to be defective. Currently 0 for 2 with XFX. Doesn't mean anything more than we're the lucky ones who get the 2% of defective GPUs.
