The Sniper Update, Day 2pipeline
With the Sniper update almost upon us Valve has updated the TF2 Blog with a number of new details regarding the update. The most significant being the new game mode - Payload Race. As a different take on the previous payload game mode both teams will have a cart which they must push towards the enemy territory, but whilst doing so they must prevent the opposing team pushing their cart to the end of the track.
Two New Arena maps will be added. Sawmill as you can tell from its name takes place in a stormy mountain sawmill. The map is the first in TF2 to feature weather effects, in this instance pouring rain. The second map Nucleus is set on a diabolical doomsday device, featuring long sightlines and a bottomless radioactive pit underneath most of the game area.
Details on the remaining unlockables should arrive tomorrow along with whatever other treats Valve have planned for us lucky gamers. Discuss in our Forums.

Will the world's first 40nm GPU have what it takes to be a contender or will it be a case of too much too soon?

Don't like barebone cards. Seem cheap. But this thing surely can compete against the 9600GT with pricing no?

Seems like a good card over all.

The 4830 easily performs above the 9600GT and the 4770 performs ahead of the 4830 and is comparable to the 4850 so it's great value for money :)

I have literally seen nothing but praise for this card. In Crossfire friendly games it's supposed to be as fast as a GTX280, which is astonishing really...

Yeah they do look rather tasty in Crossfire :yumyum:

Do I buy 2 to replace my 4850

Well we need to see figures of crossfire 4770 vs crossfire 4850 first. But for now I wouldn't do anything.

Crossfire 4850s is gonna cost about £50 more and consume more power, for not alot more performance.

4770 in x-fire decimate a 4890,4870,4850-gtx 275, gtx 260 upto 1920x1200

For £150 not a bad double act.:D

BUT if you already have a 4850, I think it's better to CF it with another '50 because its second hand price is probably dropping like a stone now.
