    Air Cooling Project: 101. Lowered CPU load by 9-10C

    Which brand off HD4850 should I get, want technical input

    Okay after seeing all the reviews on the HD4850 and HD4870 I just can't help myself and have to get one. I currently have a Crucial x1900xtx and it's getting dated and holding back the rest of my system. Also I have Crysis coming in 2-3 days and don't want to play it on mid-low settings. I...
