I can't get Diamond or Visiontek, because I'm in the UK. I've always liked Gigabyte, and my current card is an MSI 4850, but they seem a little over priced when compared to others, and no free game?

I'm looking at Powercolor, HIS, Sapphire, XFX and Asus. I already ruled out VTX because of a 1 year warranty. I also saw Club 3D, but they are always out of stock! EDIT - THEY HAVE 2 IN STOCK NOW!!

If it makes any difference, I don't need a upgraded cooler. I'm not doing any overclocking.

Thanks guys!

Phil.
It may be just a rumor but I heard it often that XFX is full of issues with the 58xx series. Sapphire is solid, ASUS and HIS I can't vouch for but seem solid enough. Powercolor I have no clue.

OK, good. Thanks for the XFX info. My mate just bought one, so I'll keep that to myself!

Sapphire is the cheapest of the lot on my usual online shops, and I've only heard good things, apart from the guy who bought the XFX!

Lots of HIS owners in this group. Would like to hear from you!

At 1ghz I notice, I can be gaming for hours,but as soon as my gpu temp goes over 63c it crashes.

Will a cooler help?

I wouldn't dwell on it really, I can't even get Vantage to complete a test for me anymore, crashes half way through, games run fine so I'll just leave it at that.

Edit: Nevermind, 'twas something to do with my monitor being off during the benchmark.
Anyway, so my post isn't totally pointless:

I agree, Vantage isn't the end-all be-all. I don't run it for the "nyah nyah nyah" factor that some folks do.

For me, it's just a basic method of indicating whether my GPU and CPU performance are similar to others with similar hardware. If I'm off by a significant amount compared to someone with similar gear, that's an indication of a possible issue that I should look into.

Gonna go for that 1ghz mark soon... but until then...

Here's my pic of my 5850 at Core Clock of 950!

Note that I had Kombuster (aka:MSI's Furmark Clone) running for 30minutes and temps held steady at 64c with fan at 75%!

Hmm.. ok that post of my pic, didn't work out too well..

I uploaded it directly to my photo album here on my OCN account and used its own posting URL... but its too small to read?

Its a screen shot of my screen at 1920X1080 resolution but I'm not sure how to post it here so its clear and readable?
