Default POWERCOLOR AX4850 - Any reviews?

Looking at putting together a system using the 4850. Saw this on the Egg

POWERCOLOR AX4850

Has a HDMI output with 7.1 sound, according to reviews on Newegg. Google search doesn't show much about this card. I've been out the computer building game a long time, and never have heard of Powercolor. Any thoughts?

Get this card if you want 4850, but doesn't have the hdmi output.

All 4850s have HDMI out and sound over HDMI...some just have a port directly on the back and others have an adapter.

XFX just started very recently, as in the last few weeks.

Thanks for the quick replies! My plan is to use the MoBo sound with a 22" monitor for general computing and gaming, and when I am able to do so, use my 46" DLP (720p) to game also. I got a 7.1 reciever, so running a HDMI cable from the computer to the receiver would be ideal. Is this possible, and would the card I linked work?
