    Sapphire has engineered their own version of the Radeon HD 4850 with cost and cooling in mind. The card's new unconventional heatsink looks good and keeps the card cool - far below reference design temperatures. The best of all is that the card costs only $169.99 online which makes it the cheapest HD 4850 available today.

    Hey, my brother just bought this card -- he'll be happy to hear about how well it overclocks, that's for sure.

    With a simple rbe mod to 1.158v mine will bench at 750/1150.

    Nice stock oc on that though.The cooler looks kinda like a intel stock cpu cooler.

    i want to bet this card will be very popular with the overclocking crowd when combined with a Thermalright Heatsink and twin 92 MM fans, or even a Toxic/Ultimate Edition board.
