    $159.99 XFX 7850 1GB_GDDR5 256bit, feedback please?

    XFX Core Edition FX-785A-ZNFC
    Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX

    This card at this price(under 200) seems pretty unbeatable, but the questions are the crippled memory(1GB) and the feedback, only 4.
    I don't seem to find any review of it so I do need some help on that, such as fan noice, heat, performance, etc...

    I also noticed the Sapphire 7850 2GB 256bit

    I'm just not sure if the CP ratio is as great as XFX one, although this card seems much quiet and the 2GB memory may have more futurity.


    Thank you in advance.


    PS1. Plan to use this new card for at least three years, my last one was MSI 4850

    I would skip getting a 1GB card if you play many modern games. Games like BF3 and such love VRAM!
