Other than the drive support for it being a little bit wonky, since the only manufacturer of 4850x2's are Sapphire. It isn't entirely supported with drivers from the ATI/AMD website.

Thats about it; oh and it is the longest video card ever. Even longer than the 4870x2, so make sure your case can fit it.

It is fully supported by ATi, don't worry about the drivers.

I'd say wait for the HD 5800 series on Sept. 10th.
