After 5yrs, back to ATI. Go Diamond HD4850, except have the fire department dialed. This thing gets hot!

I just got my first ever ATI card after my brand new XFX 8800GT came DOA and they wouldn't cross ship.

I've got a Vision Tech HD 4850 at stock speeds.

hmmm, i'd consider an upgrade in CPU as well. that 2.8Ghz Athlon X2 will become a bottle, specially when ure gonna crossfire a 3850 with the 4850.

I am a noob but why do people say the CPU bottle necks when at a nice screen size it is the GPU (in most current games) that is the bottle nick... At least that was what I have been reading from the experts!

Getting this from here.

New member coming on board! It's been a while since I sided with ATI (since my 9600Pro - Then went 6800XT --> 6800GT --> 8800GTS 320 --> 8800GT).

Now waiting on my Visiontek 4850 to get here!

This makes all 3 PCs in my house ATI (no more Nvidia - I was so tempted to get a 9800GTX!). 4850, X850 and a 9600Pro

3dfx Voodoo Banshee PCI - 1998 - Still Working

HP Rad 9x - 2002 - still working

BRING ON THE DEPRESSION
Brandless gf5400 - december 2005 - deceased reformatting XP, too much blue
XFX gf6600 - January 2007 - deceased
XFX gf7600GT - August-November 2007 - short for cash and desperate for pci-e, sold it before the nvidia honeymoon period ended

BRING ON THE HAPPINESS
Powercolor 2600XT - November-April
Powercolor 2600XT - January-April (CF)
Sapphire 3870 - April-...

i hope to stay part of the red tide for quite some time...
