As I've said so many times that it bores even me: The only thing turning some of us off to ATI is the poor performance of their drivers under Linux. If their cards, today, performed with the same respective performance under Linux as they do under Windows, I would buy one for my next system.
I can't really blame them for not concentrating on this small marketspace; I can only say that this small marketspace recognizes their concentration.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Uh you people do realize you can get overclocked 9800gtx+'s cheaper than the 4850s you reviewed. Neither of those 4850s are below 200 bucks, and what is an even more slap in the face, the Asus ultimate 9800GT is between the GTX and the GTX+ performance wise and it sells for $149. Im glad to see the HIS cooler, and if i got ATI i would go for them specifically because of that, but for another $40 you could have a stock 4870.
