    So this is the card to go if you don't want to overclock, right?
    Slightly better temps, quieter, less power hungry, same performance. Sounds good to me.

    Isn't this card identical to Gainward's offering?

    Also, Fudzilla's review of the Gainward GTX 260 GS, sporting the same cooler, suggested the card was more powerhungry than the reference card, because it never dropped to the special 2D mode. That seems to have changed here?

    Palit = Gainward, same company, they just release cards under both brands. yes, otherwise they are identical.

    Insofar as power consumption, yep, the firmware worked perfectly and the card's idle power consumption was exactly what we've come to expect from GT-200.

    always a bit sad, seeing new shiny cards. they always outperform my 4850 and are not that much more expensive. but at the time the 4850 was the way to go. so i did.
    i think i'll add another soon enough. and for all those anti-crossfire/sli rebels: i am kind of a ATI fanboy. so i'll go crossfire.

    I'd just hang on to that HD4850. It won't be that long until DX11 cards hit the market and I'd expect your HD4850 will work just fine until then.

    I know it's briliant. My Palit 275 arrived today in the post from Novatech, and a copy of Far Cry 2 is a very nice extra as I would have probally brought it anyway. I'm so glad it got a good review, as I was worried that it wouldn't be as good as a normall 275.

    Edit: To big up Nova techs delivery, I selected the free 3-4days, and it arrived the next day (allthough I was asleep yesterday, so they redelivered today).

    I bought one from Novatech as well. The card is great. Maybe I'm just a sucker for these things, but I do like the way the fans ramp up to full speed as the PC boots, and then slow down. Makes the PC sound like it's about to take off!

    During gaming I haven't noticed the fan noise though, so either the card isn't getting hot enough to turn up the fan speed, or my speakers are turned up too loud to notice ;)

    Its remarkable that all the new NVIDA beta driver game improvements, are allmost all the games BT uses for benchmarking:

    From Nvidia 185.65 beta release note:
    * Up to 11% performance increase in Call of Duty: World at War
    * Up to 5% performance increase Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
    * Up to 22% performance increase Crysis: Warhead with antialiasing enabled
    * Up to 11% performance increase in Fallout 3 with antialiasing enabled
    * Up to 14% performance increase in Far Cry 2
    * Up to 45% performance increase in Mirror’s Edge with antialiasing enabled

    From Nidia 182.50 WHQL release note:
    * Up to 8% performance increase in Fallout 3 at high resolution and AA.
    * Up to 10% performance increase in F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin.
    * Up to 9% performance increase in Half-Life 2 at high resolution with AA.
    * Up to 11% performance increase in Left 4 Dead at high resolution with AA.
    * Up to 10% performance increase in Race Driver: GRID at high resolution and AA.


    Note the 45% increase of Mirrors edge. If it was benched at 30fps it would now be at 43fps

    I like PALiT a lot, but their American division seems to have given up. Its too bad i have a 9600GT Sonic 1GB mostly for the fatc it has some gaming power and has a ton of connections for me to use.

    Why would you hope for that? I'd have thought it should be something to fear!

    We take the most popular selling games and so do they. It's not a secret sauce. :)
