No way near as good. It's a slightly modified 7900GTX.

I think you wil be happy with the HIS, from what I've seen they are the most trusted

What kind of cooling do you have? And are you over clocking?

Post pictures when you get it! :]

ALRIGHT! I ordered it! After doing a lot of research it is a GREAT value, many places say that it beats the 9800GTX. 1 day shipping ended up being free too.

I'll probably OC it just a bit, I heard heat on this card is an issue but I'll probably turn the fan on it all the way up.

Yup.

Whether the 9800GTX is overclocked or not changes nothing because it's not as if you can't overclock the HD 4850 as well.

It's too late now, but I had an ASUS TOP series card, it was great. 7900gsTOP, it was stock at 600mhz OCd to 720 from the factory, I put in a little more of course... That was the Core clock I think... It was a great card. Sold it to my cousin for $30 too, lol.
