    I wanna trade these off for a 4870, and better RAM/HDD/MOBO maybe, I don't wanna trade it for a 4870 alone. I'd feel very disappointed for performance loss while considering the amount of money to finally get 2 4850's that are stable and have one of the best coolers.

    Since most people from TPU are american or are in europe with very few aussies, I thought I could at least use your says. :)
