$300 is a bit too steep unfortunately... anything near $250 and I might as well get a 5850. I would give him $220 for it, but I doubt he would drop down that low. Thanks anyways!

Do you want single solution or can you go crossfire? Random Murderer has two Ref 4870's in your ball park.. Just throwing it out there. Good luck on the hunt

I agree about the price issue otherwise i would have got it from him already! lol On the other hand.. 5850 vs 4870x2=? I have 2 x2's and they rip through any game on a dell 24 period.. I would not count on the 5850 beating a 4870x2 in any game period imo..

Hope you find one for cheap though as they are bad arse cards :toast:

I would totally if it wasnt for review after review saying something like:

"The other major disappointment for us with the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 is the noise it makes – it’s far too loud for a modern graphics card and we have moved away from the whiney fans of the early naughties. Sadly, the two fans on the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 just make us want to jam a couple of pencils in them to shut them up – they verge on offensively loud if we’re honest and to add insult to injury, there’s no fan speed control available in any of the monitoring software we’ve tried so far.

Despite these flaws, the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 does deliver a generally better gaming experience than Nvidia’s more expensive GeForce GTX 285. The cheapest we have been able to find the 285 for is around £300, including VAT, which makes it £40 more expensive than the 4850 X2. That makes the decision difficult and while we’d typically recommend a single GPU solution almost every time (especially in light of what we’ve described above), the price difference makes it an awkward choice – the GTX 285 is 15 percent more expensive and it’s slower in four of the seven games we’ve tested here.

Frankly, the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 is too loud for a modern gaming system, driver support isn’t where we’d like it and the GeForce GTX 285 is too expensive. In light of this, we don’t believe there is a perfect choice in this segment of the market and it opens up a window of opportunity for the manufacturer who wants it the most. Right now, we’d avoid this part of the market altogether and either go higher or lower depending on your screen size and budget elasticity."
