Upgrading from a 4850 512MB

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Looking at upgrading. Was thinking about the getting the Diamond Radeon 5850 for $165 (after rebate):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814103085

Is there a better bang for the buck card in that price range? I am not really interested in SLI/Crossfire either.

Thanks for any tips.

It looks like a great card for the money. Dunno of any other to offer this performance/$ ratio.

Might pull some extra cash to get the 5870 for $210 (after rebate):

On my 4850 I have an Accelero Rev 2 which makes OCing great and super quiet. I would like something that is relatively quiet also.
