VGA Chart HD4850 vs. 8800GT

Im going to say its down to the architecture of the chips.

4850 CF 🙂 is my suggestion i guess because i'm a ATI Fan!

Looks like the 4850 is teh winner, unless the 8800 is that much cheaper. They are both comparable.

I'd go 4850 just because of efficiency....

Thanks to you all for those replies.[:D] I currently own a 8800GT and i was thinking of getting a HD4850 to upgrade, but after checking that chart you gave me Der Meister, i believe its not such a big difference in comparison with my 8800GT. I guess ill consider other vid card to upgrade. Any suggestions?

4870 x2? I think you would see a pretty good performance jump with that [:)]

The 4850 would be a solid upgrade over the 8800GT.  You should definitely give it at ry.

any thing that has come out in the past 6 months to a year from each company should provide a gain in performance... I was looking at the egg and it seems that the HD4850 costs about 160-200. for that price you could get a Evga 260GTX or 9800+ GTX... I think they would be by far the better upgrade

I would personally spend the $50 extra on THIS card for the performace gain it has over the 4850....
