Nice review mate. That 4830 is a nice GPU, but it's just too close to the price of a reference 4850...

And that IceQ4 4850 is quite possibly the sexiest graphics card of the year.

It is a rather lovely card.

As you say, the 4850 reference may pose a threat to the 4830, but even so, its still amazing value.

well look at it a year back Nvidia pwning the graphics card market and Intel the CPU, the buyout of ATI by AMD, however lacklustre products from both sides of the ATI/AMD conglomerate, now ATI coming back with great products, it may just save them, AMD job cuts are rife and if you search round for AM2 motherboards they are getting thin on the ground as more motherboard manufacturers are gearing up for I7, with AMD's recent restructure into a development and manufacturing division rumours have been circulating that they may be pulling out of retail units and concentrating on OEM and server lines....this wouldn't exactly surprise me ...look at the X58 being both SLI/Xfire capable...this gives intel quite an advantage and does follow suit for the rumours mentioned above....theres zero news on any new desktop CPU's from AMD...it just looks like AMD are running for cover at the mo and maybe the 4000 series may just give them a lifeline...

Ah I see what u mean. Indeed, and I have a secret hope that their AM3 is going to be something to take note of. I would much rather be in a quandry over ordering new kit, other than just thinking i7.

yeah it takes the fun out of choosing new hardware. I just can't see how, other then the hand of god, how AMD are going to turn the tides, but there doing a cracking job with these cards, lets hope they keep it up...

well, if you think about it, they havent had a massively new architecture for a while now.. phenom, in the end, was pretty similar to am2...

So, with any luck, whatever they have been working on will be good...

P.s, thanks for all the postive feedback guys!!
