i really don't see much point in this card, yeah it has 40nm manufacturing process but i seen on some reviews, it didn't even overclock that well, and had high idle power consumption. It cost a bit more then the 4830 which is nearly as good, and is about 10 less then a decent 4850 which is a bit better then the 4770. A card to fill the void between the 4830 and 50 wasn't needed at all.
