More load => more heat => fan works harder => more noise
1 question, where do you place the extra fan to reduce the heat? The heat is being spread around the card, not 1 way. You can imagine your HD4850X2 in your casing and try to use the convection theory on how to place your fan to maximize heat diverting. If you even suceed doing it, there will be less noise as the fan do not need to work so hard to keep your gpu cool. In additional, your extra fan may add to the noise. Answer : No, it wont suddenly turn quiet as you are at most be able to cut off a few degrees.

Trust me, you will regret buying that. Many people are having headache trying too sell off their HD4xxxX2.

Im fine with the psu but the graphic card is not worthy as its not core 216.
If you wanna use MATX, theres some AMD 790 chipset MATX which i will recommend DFI lanparty JR series. Its only cost afew dollars more then Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L and you get a crossfire board with 2 x pcie2.0 @x8speed equivalent to 2 x PCIE1.0x16 @x16speed, not much loss of speed.
Phenom 2 920 and 940 > Intel Core™ 2 Quad Q8200 (3dMark06 source:http://www.legitreviews.com/article/896/11/) and only cost afew dollars more but much better overclocking ability.
My recommendation only cost afew bucks more but you will get better results in playing modern games. Remember to get a higher wattage PSU if u intent to SLI or Xfire in the future, PSU is also a investment so think thrice. Im fine with the rest as it is most likely to be a personal preference.

opps! my bad, i thought the non-OCed version dosnt have core 216. However, the performance wise still lose to HD4890 alone, not to mention acceleration of the amd chipset. Peace to Nvidia lovers, just stating the truth.

It even perform better than the 260 on some games that PhysX compatible which the nvidia will gain some advantage.

People said that XFX has better temperature as i think might be the cause of the same concept behind HIS/ATI4870^ Reference designs. XFX also have the xXx edition which are extremely factory overclocked.

Well, in lower resolutions, u may be able to play crysis in high settings(not ultra)without AA with no problem, any higher resolution may only barely made it through. (our eyes only can see 25fps)(Barely made it through = 30-40fps). Refer to the table.

Temperature should also be fine 50+- at idle and 60+- on load. Fan will most likely to be inaudible.

Tell me about the temperature, sound and how well it will go on ulta high settings. And yes, that's two video cards.


1)Price of 2 x 9800GT = 1 x 260(core 216), rather u get 1 x 216 so u can SLI with another GTX2xx series card.
2)Your motherboard support up to DDR2-PC6400 only, getting a PC8500 and CL7 ram is totally overkill.
3)Get a sata DVD burner instead, IDE cable block airflow.
4)Get HX series of cosair instead, TX series isnt modular nor u need so much of power.(Thumbs up to Cosair HX620)

2X9800GT SLI may beat a single GTX260 by in crysis, but others shows that the GTX260 stays as the winner. In conclusion, its not worth SLI cause u need to have the card of same series to setup a SLI. Which means u cant SLI and 9800GT with any of the GTX2xx. Unlike buying a GTX260, you can SLI with any of the current cards, GTX260, 275, 280, 285, 295.

I checked this review and according to them, the Sapphire Radeon 4850 X2 1GB doesn't make that much noise: http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article.html?art=MTYzMSwxLCxoZW50aHVzaWFzdA==

I also doubt that they would ever publish the video card if it didn't work properly. So regardless the effort you spent on this, we're back on square one. Does the Sapphire Radeon 4850 X2 1GB take the latest games on max settings?

Answer : not really, depends on that game if it support multi GPU. It not, it will work like a reference 4850. As i said, i can assure this graphic card is hot after awhile. Let me quote from the side
The cooling devices on these video cards work well. It can even be said that they work equally well to dissipate the heat generated by the devices they are designed to protect. However, due to the design of the cooling device and nature of plastic as an inefficient heat conductor, and aluminum as a very efficient heat conductor, more of the heat generated by the AMD Radeon HD 4870 1GB and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 will be exhausted out of the case before it has a chance to heat up the ambient temperature of the case. So, the addition of the 2 extra DVI ports and the elimination of the thermal exhaust port will cause the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 to increase the ambient temperature of your case more than the other two video cards we looked at today.

That website didnt stats the noise issues but it did here http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2009/01/23/sapphire-ati-radeon-hd-4850-x2-2gb/15
The other major disappointment for us with the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 is the noise it makes – it’s far too loud for a modern graphics card and we have moved away from the whiney fans of the early naughties. Sadly, the two fans on the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 just make us want to jam a couple of pencils in them to shut them up – they verge on offensively loud if we’re honest and to add insult to injury, there’s no fan speed control available in any of the monitoring software we’ve tried so far.

So if u insist i cant comment much, i just think that it still a fail product.

I agree on every single point. But if I don't pick one of these cheap packets I will have to build one piece by piece.

Maybe you're able to install water cooling? And besides, how well does this case exhaust the hot air? http://www.komplett.se/k/ki.aspx?sku=369483&view=detailed#ProductTabs

Buying a HD4850X2 will only last you 3 months and the new series of graphic cards would be out.

Well maybe I'll sell it later on. I think it's worth a try and as this is a packet I doubt I have much of a choise Goofy 'cause the other components in my sapphire radeon packet was alright right?

well if i get a new video card it would be because of the noise and i doubt that i would buy a video card that needs x2 to be at any use.

790 can run crossfire in PCIE 2.0@ x8 speed
This is the same speed as PCIE @ x16 speed
Not much of speed lost compared to x4 speed.

That is why some people said ATI crossfire > 3way SLI (Which is true as u get more performance out of ur cards, SLI have higher caps)

DVD drive i assume it is old stock (IDE). Those thick fat wire will block up your airflow and mess up wires.(harder to do cable managment). But for DVD drive, Sata's speed and IDE's speed does not differ much, its up to you.

at x4 speed, even with a single HD4850, the speed will greatly suffer.

I doubt we're talking about the same thing...

1. I buy the computer
2. I change the dvd driver to make more room in the case
3. I buy a new video card if I think that the card is too noisy. I'll thereby sell the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB and buy a new one - GTX 295 or something alike.
4. I'll add some extra ram memory
