well, Astro, its time to renew your faith in AMD. behold the Radeon 5850
. faster, quieter, and less power hungry than a GeForce GTX 285.
seriously, the only problem i have with the 5850 is the location of the power connectors (i would prefer to have them on top of the card instead of on the side for space considerations). this one puts out a lot less heat than the 5870, and its quieter to boot. good thing that its shorter, too. i should have room to fit it in my new micro-ATX computer.
See the struggle of the faithless lot as they negate their time
How low to sink to the depths of their frame of mind
