Pros
Amazing performance graphics card
Cons
Gets very hot
Summary
Excellent performance for this card but things to consider are attaching a good heatsink and fan (voids warranty) and it only has a 1 year warranty.

Pros
Great value
Fast on smaller screens
Cons
Inssuficient on larger wide screen monitors
Fan makes an annoying wine on full blast
Summary
I purchased this card for a friends build and tested some crysis out on it. I was impressed by the FPS I was getting on high settings o 1280x1024 resolution. However on my 24" wide screen (1920x1200) the frame rates were abysmal and wasn't even close to being playable. I will keep my GTX280 for that monitor. However if you use a 19" monitor this is a great card for you. Though I found the 8800GTS G92 to perform slightly better in most games and as such the 9800GTX+ would perform better yet for a similar price. Either way this is interesting times in the graphics market!

Pros
Very Powerful (when it works)
Very GoodPrice
Runs very cool (with my fan speed increase)


Cons
I am very disappointed with my first card (Malfunctioned)
Summary
TEMPERATURE:

70%FanSpeed: 41CIdle/59CLoad
25%FanSpeed: 81CIdle/95CLoad

As you can see my fan mod greatly decreased the temps, all you need to do is go into some files and change things around.

I haven't stopped having problems with my 4850 so I had taken back and will be receiving a new one in the next few days.

Problems that I have encountered:

When I play games such as: Spore, Company Of Heroes, World in Conflict; After about 1 minute of gameplay my screen would go black with green vertical lines. This is not heat related and just a plain malfunctioned card. I also experienced Artifacting in Crysis, but Crysis actually ran very well with no crashes.

When the card runs its very impressive, to bad it only plays some of my games.

I would give it 1 Star, but I did not buy the card from NCIX, It's from HIS Digital.

If I were to buy from NCIX I would give it 5 stars.

Pros
best bang for the buck card, low profile
Cons
runs a little hot
Summary
this is the best bang for the buck video card in my opinion. it can play pretty much any game I throw at it with good frame rates. I would highly recommend this card.

Pros
Powerful. Best Bang for the bucks as for now. This card is as powerful as the 9800GTX+.

ATI runs best on Source games so Hl2 series and anything in relation get a boost over Nvidia.
Cons
Like everyone says: Hot.
Their is a hack to manually change the Fan Speed and it's back to normal!
Summary
Best Bang for the bucks.... for now.

If you slap 2 of these cards you can get 4870 performance but i think one is good enough for a few years.

Pros
Great performance
Awesome price for what you get
Cons
Runs pretty hot
Can get loud as fan speed ramps up
Very short warranty
Summary
Coming from a Radeon HD 3850 256MB, I felt a pretty big performance increase. For the first time, I'm actually able to play at high resolution with everything maxed out...and I didn't even have to break the bank!

From that little story, I'm sure it goes without saying that the performance on this card is amazing. It was only $150 (no rebates!) when I got it and it came with Racedriver: GRID for free which made the deal even sweeter!

On the other hand, with the stock heatsink the GPU can run pretty darn hot. Idle temperatures are around 70-80C and max out somewhere around 90C. Also, when the temperatures get higher, the fan can ramp up and gets a little too loud for my liking.

Anyway, it's an amazing card and should be more than adequate for a lot of gaming systems out there today.

Pros
Pretty powerful. An amazing mainstream card. I can play all games comfortably at 1680x1050. High settings (very few tabs to medium)
Cons
I don't want to sit here and say it will handle EVERYTHING you throw at it... because it obviously will not. I notice on my brand new gaming machine, that it stutters on COH opposing fronts if you put all settings to max (on a 22inch screen)... likewise in FSX I run into frequent stutters at max (but that might be from my e8400 too)
Summary
Overall its a great card. I have a 600 watt powersupply which seems to be AMPLE for this card.

I would recommend this card for the price... although as times passes, cards just get faster and cheaper.

For now, this is the sweet spot though!

Pros
Excellent value and performance
Cons
Very hot (~80 degrees on load)
Summary
A very good deal for a already good card! get 2 of these for xfire!

ati's drivers are constantly being improved too, so all should be well.

Comment: The 4850 does what it is designed to do with high end performance outclassing the HD3870 across the board for a $200 price point using less power and with excellent features the HD4850 is interesting competition to NVIDIA’s mid-range card the 9800GTX+ and 9800GTX standard at $199.
