You wouldn't happen to know if the ram cooling plate is separate from the actual core part would ya Jim?

I'm thinking a couple of these and a pair of MCW60's would make for a rather tasty party.

Being kinda hands-off from the ATI world, I think the card parallels the other 4850 card pretty well. Further, the extra cash for the cooler and the package as a whole (the screwdriver looks pretty darn handy imo , I'd advise some1 get one so I can nick it hehe). Yeah its tat, but hey it's all in the presentation. Lacks a game tho, from what I can see, to me they should all include a reference game or atleast something to play with - a string of demos, something.

Looks good to me, any audio for that hdmi ? and how much cooler does it get ?!?!

Good review, I'll promote them so I can have a screwdriver !

ATI have made a awesome card. 4850 is the card to get . The performance to the price is very good. Would of liked to seen a 4870 in the benchmarks aswell though

Nice one Jim.. Did you take the cooler off at all? I found there was an abundance of TIM on mine, which went all over the Core PCB

The coolers are nice though, arctic cooling ftw!

Its a very nice card indeed. But, i have an Asus 4850 with stock cooler and goes like hell OC @ 695/1110 with temps no higher than 61°C.

So, in my opinion its just a card who looks indeed v well, but i wont pay some extra cash for just that and an factory OC when i can make that my self.

Rastalovich, if they r gone put a game bundle then also the price will get higher and, where its gone be the Cost per Frame ?! And what if its gone be a game that u already have or dont like ?!
