I'd go with HIS. Their IceQ series is excellent, but the 4850 isn't out yet.

I got two Hightech regular 4850, and I must say I dig the screwdriver.

My System Specs


Good question fawconpunch. I can see myself going with a couple of 4870s whenever I decide replace this mobo. Sounds like HIS is the leading brand so far.

The world is your oyster. Shuck away my friend, shuck away!

I got some interesting results from a thread I started, eventually exploring the "after market" warranty and found that only Sapphire, HIS and Visiontek had a clearly defined warranty on their websites others seemed to just want to baffle with gobbilty goop:

Which brand off HD4850 should I get, want technical input

I bought a Sapphire because I can't get Visiontek in Australia and they had a clearly defined Warranty for 2 years.
