Best Brand ATI Radeon 4850? - Lower end of price range
 
Hey there this is my first build (specs in signature) I'm just wondering if there's any real difference in performance between ATI 4850 brands, these are the cards I'm looking at...

ASUS Extreme AH4850 512mb
HIS ATI Radeon HD4850 512mb
Palit Radeon HD4850 512mb

Those are the 3 cards at the lower end of the price range of 4850's, so is there any real difference between them and possibly something a little more expensive like a Sapphire or Gigabyte version?

A 4850 is already stretching my budget so id prefer to go with one of the cheaper ones but if sapphire etc... brands are a huge difference then i will go with them.

Thanks guys! :D

It will be more expensive depending on the clock and memory speed. The heatsink on the card plays a factor as well.

Those are all good video cards.

I've owned a few Asus video cards and they have performed flawlessly. The HIS and Palit cards are a bit lessor known, but they produce good quality video cards.

This one is one of the cheapest and it has a nice after market heatsink.

Visiontek has lifetime warranties on their AMD cards...
