damn I was just gonna post this!

I really with I had waited to buy my 4850 now, the warranty was always the crap part about ATI, now the best warranty company in the biz is making them AWESOME!

time for an upgrade anyways, haa 4850 on 1280x1024 is already a waste of power...

Yeah the design is brutal but it probably performs to make up for it.

The design is pretty awesome, but the logo is just horrid. Give me a card with minimalistic looks, like the XFX 4830... I like the red DVI ports.
