Default What's the difference?

So i was looking around Newegg for a new gpu.. and i decided to get a HD4850 as it was recommended... as i was looking i seen this card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102770

and also this card

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161235

they all perform the same, they are using the same chip.
The only difference is the HSF, and the manufacturer. I think some cools better than others.
The 4850 already is a pretty cool chip, from what i have heard.

You're doing it again. You'll be getting the opposite if you start asking for it.

yeah, i think its best not to ask for rep.
I dont think you would get any points anyways since OP is still fairly new.
