    As long as it is Gigabyte's non reference 4850, GET IT! You'll have a lot of fun with it :)

    a mate just bought that 9800GTX+ by gigabyte. (what i voted for)

    custom pcb, much smaller, like 9600GT size, seems tiny!

    customer cooler, zalman VF830, wont need replacing.

    1gb of memory, complements this GPU.

    gigabyte gamer hud with on the fly voltage changes, starts at 1.15v and you can go quite a bit higher, at least 1.3v i think, hello 850+mhz on the core!

    all in all this takes what was a 9800GTX+ and makes it better in every conceivable way, go gigabyte.

    i have had only the best of experiences with gigabyte, the only boards i run atm are all gigabyte.

    my new GTX260 is gigabyte....

    overall the 9800GTX+ looked to be of exceptional quality also, and naturally on a custom pcb its gigabytes ultra durable board and components.
