Asus HD4850 512mb PCI-E Graphics Card EAH4850
Frankly, ATI are really aiming at the middle market share with the HD4850, and it's fair to say that they've definitely captured this market with style. The HD4850 is already set at £140 and even £120 for the lower models, and this is a very important price point in a very tight market.
AA performance was a big downfall of the last gen, but ATI have fixed this issue and caused enthusiasts a real headache. Nvidia have been forced to drop the 9800 GTX in price very close to the £140 mark and some partners already have done so
, but the HD4850 is a real player for your hard earned cash. Personally, I like to edge a little for the underdog, and since Nvidia blatantly started churning out G80 re-runs, I have almost been egging ATI on....finally we see a card that really performs and really gives (has given
) Nvidia food for thought.

Can two big companies battling it out in the market be a bad thing for consumers? Hell no is my answer, bring it on!
The Asus HD4850 get's the OC3D Value for Money Award for really mixing it up.
