2nd deal on a 5850 showing a price drop. This one is nice.
really itching to buy this but gotta wait for 5890
Non-reference means no voltage control. No thank you.
it's gonna drop more wait and see
Yep just bought this one an hour ago. I think prices might actually go up once all the Fermi reviews drop.
Could be a reference card with a non-reference cooler. I'll have to look up some reviews if anyone has covered that with this card.
and the cooler is non ref is what I ment.
Be nice to have voltage control but not a deal breaker for me.
It is a non reference PCB. This card, the Toxic version and the PowerColor PCS+ all are non-reference PCB's and do NOT allow for voltage control. I did a ton of research before I bought a card, because I originally wanted the non-reference cooler, but it seems that non-ref cooler is going hand in hand with non reference PCB's with 5850's thus far.
Ah well that's too bad. But again not a deal breaker. With the free shipping I saved almost $40 over a reference model. I would have waited longer to see what prices and offerings do once fermi is everywhere but really dying to try BFBC2 with the Catalyst drivers and some proper AA.
still this is a great video card
It is a great card. I just don't want to be limited with Voltage control when owners of reference cards are not.
