Ok I am sorry if I come across like a dick here, but who proofreads the news and reviews before they are posted?

I am sorry it just annoys me when there are typo's and stuff on the news page and in reviews. I guess I'm OCD like that.

Like I said I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything, but you spelled typo wrong. But I'm guessing you did that on purpose.

Well, as far as the review goes, it was very well done.
The card was done even better! The overclock on that thing is sweet. It brings it on par with the GTX 260 at 1920x1200.
Any idea when 2560x1600 (or something along those lines, don't really know) will be introduced?

It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.

I'm not sure I get this card. It does not outperform the "normal" 4850's? Just costs more?

You can find typos and errors in anything, read just about any magazine on earth and there will be a small section devoted to the previous issues errors...

It happens...

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

I know.

Yeah I love the reviews here, and the review of this card was a good one, but I don't buy Asus products they are way to overpriced for what you get.

It outperforms them by a lot.
When overclocked, of course.

No I didn't do it on purpose :lol: One of the mods might be screwing around with me I dunno. I was doing a few things when I typed that so I could have made the mistake :rolleyes:

While pricey it does what we do well OC and runs at cooler temperatures. At stock clocks there is no reason that it should outperform the stock card its the rest of the package. How well does the other card OC by comparison not as well.
