I was needing to upgrade my graphics card for a long time, but I didn't want to over pay. I started to look into what video card was the best bang for your buck. I came across this video card and the performance for the price was right on. Not only was the price great, but the video card performed just as good as the higher end models that were over $100.00 more!
I've been playing all kinds of games with this new video card and they all look amazing. There is no graphics lag at all and I have the game settings maxed out. My FPS is way higher than I need on most games, so I always have smooth game play even in online games with hundreds of other people running around.
The look of the card is great. It has a very big cooler on it and an extra air vent to keep it cool under full load. The card is very heavy and well manufactured. I've always been a fan of MSI, they do a great job. I have never tried an ATI card before, but when I saw MSI manufactured it I decided to give it a try. Not to mention ATI is producing better video cards than Nvidia at the moment in my opinion.
If you are a gamer or just a casual pc user, I recommend this video card. The price is right and you can't go wrong with purchasing the MSI ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB.
