Im in croydon, victoria. I've seen a few 4850 vs. 9800GT reviews and they all point towards the 4850, stating that the 9800 was basically just rebadged where as the 4850 had improvements. I was just deterred by the price basically.

I think i had noted that earlier today in that video card ranking list. Thanks for reminding me - i had forgotten...

msy.com.au - Their site looks like crap but ive been to one of their numerous shops and they are pretty good.
Now THAT is crap web design. What do they think this is? The 1990's?

Thanks for your help.

That place will probably sell me all the parts i need! And Boxhill is nice and close.

One question with regard to that card:

I've seen Saphire, palit, ATI, Force3D, HIS.

WHICH ONE!?

Well for the 4850 your choice is: Generic, Gigabyte or Asus.
Id say the Asus.

Or if your talking anywhere, then probably HIS.
