    Graphics Card Get!

    YAYYYYYYYY!!!!

    Abu got me a graphics card a few days back, and it finally arrived in the mail today! And it is AWESOMMME~!!

    ... I'm no techy, I'm a gadgetier. I know how to work gadgets and collect them - I DON'T KNOW how they work or the special geek-names they're given. I just know them by product name.
    So in that regard, don't ask me anything specific about this thing.
    To me: It's just a shiny, pretty, big-@$$ graphics card that was worth its price.

    What is it exactly?

    *looks on box*
    RADEON SAPPHIRE HD4850
    comes with a big-@$$ fan that makes little-to-no-noise. With that in there, the graphics card can run at full-power without melting itself to death.
    ........ at least, that's as far as I know.

    It seemed like the best choice considering I needed a graphics card that was under $200 and ran on VISTA.
    It's odd how many graphics cards don't say whether or not they work on VISTA.

    ... I assume most new models do, but I can't take that risk.
    So the only one that seemed good enough to be under $200 and guaranteed me it worked on VISTA, was this baby.
    It was in fact $136.99.
    Pretty good considering that it doesn't overheat like a mofo.
    And it suits my purposes well!

    I CAN FINALLY PLAY SOULSTORM AGAIN!!!
    I haven't played that game in months.
    ... I love RTSs...
    It doesn't matter if I have a similar RTS on my 360 or what, I just want to play THAT one or THAT one - because all games are different no matter what genre they belong to.

    ... speaking of which, I can finally get Dawn of War II.
    Awesomeness.

    And my current games in here get a graphics upgrade! Yahoo!



    ^.^ ~<3 DANKU DANKU SO MUCH DAWING! DIS GIFT SO TERRIFIC! ME WUV U LONG TIME!

    Sorry I didn't get to try it out to its best last night hun - what with MGO SURVIVAL and SF4.

    Sorry you haven't been able to shotgun people to their doom as of late babe... You'll get your game back.

    My GeForce 9800GTX kicks its but, but nice score on the card though.

    If you like RTS's, get World in Conflict or Empire Total War, they look amazing. Or better yet, get Dawn of War 2.

    I'm not even sure if that was under $200...

    I need some more Total War (I'm not sure where my ROME Total War copy is...) and I've been planning on getting World in Conflict.
    ......... And don't remind me, I REALLY HAVE BEEN YEARNING Dawn of War 2.
