    4850x2 probally is the smart choice but the heat and noise issues are pushing me away.

    Despite the fact that the Hexus article clearly shows it's the coolest card on test?

    *cough*

    HOW MUCH??!!?!

    It maybe a very fast card but even as a single GPU solution but at that cost, you may as well go the whole hog and get a GTX295.

    Got micro stutter?

    Why doesn't the review have the 4850X2 power draw? Also why not perform the tests with "how far" you can overclock the graphics cards and show another bang4buck (hate that word...), that is unless you don't have the cards.

    One last criticism is why do you have 2 different PSU's? The efficiencies will vary and the load and idle power draw from the wall won't be as accurate as using 1 PSU across the board.

    Was wondering that my self, if the 4870X2 is only a bit more than the 285(like 30watts on load) then surely the 4850 would be even less?. Id say the 4850x2 is the best buy at this point in time, offers similar performance and is cheaper along with the fact its 2 cores on one PCB so effectivley an efficient dual core cpu .

    Thanks for the review.

    (Oh, and you had this in my inbox before THG, btw. Quite a feat. Sorry if that's "stirring".)
