MSI's R4850 512M Radeon HD 4850, Good 3D Cheap

No matter what you think of AMD's ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series of video cards, you'd be crazy not to love what AMD did with the pricing of the first two cards (Radeon HD 4850 and HD 4870) from the series. As a result of AMD's aggressive pricing, NVIDIA felt compelled to lower the price of its latest GeForce video cards, the GeForce GTX 260 and the GTX 280.

Today, we have a look at MSI's Radeon 4850 offering.  To see how well the new MSI R4850 512M performs, we'll pit it against a Radeon HD 4870, a Radeon HD 3850, a GeForce GTX 260 and a couple GeForce 9800 GTXs.

Looks like a good card. Nice overclocker too.

I totally agree with what Shane said.  I'm a nVidia user, due to the relative performance of the Linux drivers, but competition's good for the consumer; we love the price drops.
