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.

I can see your point, but I consider it a replacement to the 4830. I think it makes more sense there. It actually does OC well, once you get the drivers worked out.
