Radeon HD 5850 Impressions

In comparison to the GTX 260 in an Antec P183 case, the Radeon HD 5850 (XFX brand):
--runs 5-8C cooler on the desktop
--runs 3-5C cooler under load
--is extremely quiet (fan never goes higher than 30% under load)
--is about 40% faster at 1920x1200

It was a no-incident install, and I am incredibly pleased with the card.

And yes, King's Bounty still crashes. Which is not the fault of the card, but I was hoping a new card would fix the problem.
