    XFX Radeon HD 4770

    The 4770 is also not as long as a GTS 250 and will fit better in smaller systems, using less power and run cooler. The GTS 250 would not be as cheap as this card if it was not for the price and performance of this card and AMD lowering the price of the 4850 to make up for the low stock of the...

    List of the components that i'm ordering

    Good specs., agree replace the psu with the Corsair for the money considering that Corsair psu are made by seasonic in the first place. Keep the ram you have, I would rather spend the extra $10 for ram that is speced to run at 1066. Also for the same price of the 9850 you can get the 9950...

    45nm AMD CPUs To Get New Model Numbers?

    I would think that the fact that AMD has their memory controller built into the CPU increases the wattage, I'm not thinking alot but maybe 10W. This can account for the higher wattage, not all of it but some. Also Intels next CPU with integrated memory controller is 130W @ 3Ghz, which I think...

    9800GT or 9800GTX+, which one? help me decide.

    The Step-Up program is good only for 90 Days, if you upgrade to a new monitor and then Step-Up with in that 90 Days your going to be paying more than just going with a 4870/260 now. You have to remember that step up uses they price you payed for the card and the MSRP of the card your going to...

    4850? Don't bother.

    Its not in a closet but in a cabinet attached to my computer desk. There are a couple of holes in the back for cables, and the front door is not a perfect seal.

I have not had a single issue with this card, and it is far better than the 8800GT I upgraded from, you would be disapointed if...

    New shuttle. is it worth the money

    This shuttle was just realeased, and I wouldn't be planning on a revision for a couple of months. This setup is crossfire capable, it uses the 975 chipset which is crossfire capable. ATI does not lock their crossfire system to their own chipsets.
