    Here is the deal I am looking to get this card I have always heard that Sapphire is a really good company and I should get it but if you look below at the links I provided the Sapphire card is $62.19 more that the VisionTek (both including shipping). You tell me from experience what card I should go with???? Keep in mind that I do not plan on overclocking.



    VisionTek X850XT PE (Retail) $351.80


    Sapphire X850XT PE (Retail) $413.99

    Get the card with the best price. They are the same card with different cooler decals. I bought a Sapphire 850xtpe and it came with a ATI cooler decal on it ! Great card by the way.

    Just checked your "rig" spec's and it seems you already made your choice. Why waste resources here when you already bought the card! Why the pole?

    Becuase that is the card i want and planed on getting until i saw the $62 diffreance so i turned to my friends here on driverheaven for some advise. I would say posting a reasonable question on a FORUM is not a waste of resources. If Zardon and the rest of the crew think so then ill just close this thread and hope the gods will help me pick one.

    Well leasson leanred my friends! Got the card and it is the same as the built by ATI one. None the less this is a awsome card running most games @ 1600 x 1200 with max settings except Call of Duty 2 got to run it @ 1280 x 960 but still awsome.
