If you're only playing those games.. why do you really need an HD 4850... like a 8800gts g92 for $120 from FXVideocards is good enough (actually its still overkill but for $120 why not..)

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:

I hate Nvidia's driver issues, I've had to send back two 8800gts, and even still people are getting the display driver issue.

I'd rather have a good ATI card anyways.
