ya, that could be good news for anyone who wants two nice video cards (or two people who want one good videocard). Assuming he likes the 4850x2 and would sell the 4870's

well ive been on cod4,codwaw,wow,ut3 and crysis and im pleased to inform you that the single card outperforms the toxics,not by a huge margin but it beats it out.

So im well pleased.Because i have always preferred single card solutions.The temps are pretty good to,its idling right now at 36c,and hits around 55c to 60c in game.

It was a total surprise when it turned up at the door this morning.Sapphire have got my vote. :thumbs-up:

coolio!, you gonna save the toxics as backups? or sell them off for some free dough.

 

Also are those temps being reached with the fan set to auto, because that's pretty fantastic if that's auto setting.

Nice. I'm quite impressed by it's temps then, does it spool up to pretty loud under load or no? The cooler on those seems to be pretty serious

its a little louder than than most cards ive owned but its not to bad,when it ramps up as the heat gets higher it does get louder.

Thats to be expected with 2 fans strapped in.

But its totally acceptable,i game with a headset so it dont bother me anyway.its a mean set of fans on it,and the build quality is

top notch.The black body is solid aluminium.its just a top card all round.

ya I'm not one to complain about noise. i run my computer 24/7 with both Scythe fans running full speed on my heatsink, I figure if I can sleep with my computer than it's acceptable to me.

As long as it cools well then I'm happy
