    Bought a hefty graphics card.

    So, I took some money I had saved up, and bought a graphics card. It's amazing so far. Plays everything on the highest settings with no lag, on the highest resolutions. It blows my mind.
    It also looks like it ate like 12 of my old graphics cards.

    I bought this guy, but the black edition.
    It doesn't look big, but it's the size of my elbow to the tips of my fingers. It's super long and giant.


    Check it:
    ATI Radeon? HD 5850 graphics

    XFX HD-585A-ZNBC Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB Black Edition 256-bit GDDR5 pci-e 2.0 x 16 hdcp ready CrossFire supported video card

    Anyone else have the same/similar card?
    If so, what are reviews?
    Did I make a good choice, like I think I did?


    Oh, and here are some specs. These specs are for the not overclocked one though, the normal version, not the black one. The black version comes pre-overclocked and all this shit.

    Shoulda got a Radeon 6850.

    Yours is still better than mine
    '08 MPGH OG

    You get the bag and fumble it
    I get the bag and flip it and tumble it
    Straight out the lot, 300 cash
    And the car came with a blunt in it
    Lil mama a thot, and she got ass
    And she gon' fuck up a bag
    Pull up to the spot, livin' too fast
    Droppin' the dope in the stash
    In Italy, got two foreign hoes, they DM me
    Drop the top when it's cold
    But you feel the heat
    Be real with me, just be real with me
    Eat it up like it's a feast
    They say the dope on fleek

    I don't have a need for it, or the money.
    This card beats my expectations, and powers through everything I throw at it.

    True that, the 6850 is overpowered for much of what is out today. I was just reading through the specifications on your card before you replied, and I gotta say...
    DAUM, you got a hell-of-a-nice card.

    Congrats, yo.
