The Radeon HD 5850 is generally regarded as the quicker card, but it's a small margin and it's a bit more expensive for it. Regardless of which one you end up with, you wouldn't have made the wrong choice as they're somewhat comparable.

Interestingly, the Radeon does tend to run a bit cooler and consume a little less power.

Hi,
Well I was looking to buy an XFX 5850 Black Edition reference design Unfortunately it's discontinued

Anyhow, In regard to ASUS EAH 5850 TOP DirectCu 1024 MB, The Instruction Included with this video card is completely wrong YOU NEED BOTH THE SIX AND EIGHT PIN POWER CABLES TO MAKE THIS CARD WORK!!!

THAT IS WHY YOU GOT THE HIGH PITCHED WHINE WHEN ONLY ONE CABLE WAS USED.....
Other Thoughts: I wonder how many of these were returned defective because of


the power cable issue not being clear in the instructions

cheers.
