My new XFX 4890 1gb ... :)

ITS HERE! check out the unboxing after this videos done (just click first video to the right) ...a great card that i'll be benching with games and such...mobo upgrade is next....looking at the Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P ...the cheapest SB750 and seems to be a good overclocker..not really interested in the whole "turn your 720 into a 940"


PROS:

-really FAST!(significant upgrade over my 8800GT which was also made by XFX)

-Free $50 game (HAWX) not my thing but real nice graphics and easy to get into

-Looks!(my favorite sticker on the new 90's with ASUS coming in at a close second)

-Runs real cool with panel off and 50% fan speed (see cons)

-Good drivers with CD(seems to be an ATI problem for awhile,been reading)


CONS:(not really for me)

-not an XT? (i can make it an XT easily)

-NOW i know why people call 4800's blowdryers and vacuums lol (may be a big turnoff for some)

-strange issue possibly driver related...in CCC it says i have 2 monitors? im running only 1,(hasn't affected any thing i do so far so whatever)

-UT3 is still F*ked up and i really thought it would work...8800GT had the same problem as well so no hard feelings on the card...


____________________________________________THE BOTTOM LINE__________________________

my only ati card purchase before this was an x1950 pro that sucked hard!..

i was a little skeptical when i ordered this but everything has been an awesome XFXperience with ATI so far...red looks lovable again and has made a place for itself in the chest of my case...


9/10 (would've been 11 if UT3 worked)

actually what i meant was i want a minimum frames of no less then 60 :)

4890 is a good card but I'd like a gtx 275 for two reasons. #1 physxs, #2 Nvidia 3D, #3 I have an Nvidia chipset. otherwise nice card and I hope ATI/AMD gets their drivers strait.

Yeah UT3 is not a demanding game at all. I can max it easily with my oc 3870.

i would much rather get the gtx 275

i honestly dont see the big deal with "Physx",i also wanted to see what the "4800 turnaround" was about and it's great!....not everyone compensates for a tiny "dingalong" with a name similar too urbanshaft so they look elsewhere ;)

cool card but I would have gone with GTX 275

Before you do that, I recommend to give this a look:


>ATi

>XFX
