Well I find the 4850 runs anything maxed with no AA (even crysis warhead till the last level, then it drops below 24fps and I turn some stuff to gamer) MW2 runs perfectly fine, though it is just a port so its kind of a bad gauge. Fully satisfied with it though, quiet, cool 43c idle, 65c load, which I was surprised by since many people said they had overheating issues. Does everything I wanted it to perfectly fine.
IMO get a 5770, around the 4870 performance, dx11, and only $40 more. Pretty much the only reason I got this card was cause the 1gb version was on sale for $119.99 when I bought it, two weeks later it was $189.99 for some reason. Now I don't think you can even buy it
(from newegg at least).
Yeah could be the PSU, friend's 6pin on his 4890 came loose somehow and it really threw off his performance. I was getting better FPS with a 4850, finally figured it out after a while.
