Weekly Giveaway - GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5850 OC Edition video card (April 8th - April 16th 2010)

We have teamed up with GIGABYTE to giveaway one of its Radeon HD 5850 OC Edition video cards - the GV-R585OC-1GD to be specific.


http://images.tweaktown.com/news/1/4/14791_01.png


GIGABYTE's GV-R585OC-1GD video card (http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/VGA/Products_Spec.aspx?ClassValue=VGA&ProductID=3354&ProductName=GV-R585OC-1GD) is based on AMD's popular ATI Radeon HD 5850 GPU and offers rather good gaming performance with the latest graphics technologies including DX11 and GDDR5 memory.

What's good about this model is that it comes pre-overclocked from the factory and that means the core sees an increase from the default 725MHz to 765MHz!

I'm sorry to ask, but I am new to this forum. Was this giveaway some kind of a joke? Coz if it was then you got me! I've been checking this forum and the FB profile every 30 minutes for the past 3 days or so.

Since I am the only one asking, I guess it really was a prank. Radeon 5850 OC for free... right.

I'm sorry to ask, but I am new to this forum. Was this giveaway some kind of a joke? Coz if it was then you got me! I've been checking this forum and the FB profile every 30 minutes for the past 3 days or so.

Since I am the only one asking, I guess it really was a prank. Radeon 5850 OC for free... right.

Sorting through contest entries can take a lot of time. I don't know about Cameron (Mr. Tweak) but a lot of site owners have other jobs to help support themselves along with other life commitments. Sit back, be patient, and I'm sure the winner will be posted soon. :thumbsup:

All right then Mr.Tweak. You're the admin, so I guess there is still hope. My nVidia 9600GT 256MB isn't handling stuff like FarCry 2 too well and my 700W Thermaltake powersuply must be really bored with my setup.

Good luck to everyone, but the card just has to go to Ireland

and since my name is adam i think i win this nationality argument
unless there is someone here named eve
then i'll go to the church and be baptized again and change my name from adam to adam and eve

Will post pics when I get the card, Optix! With regards to the HDDs, might be time to pull out that 10GB at last. It's the only item that has survived my perpetual upgrade since I started building my PC 10 years ago.

Happy birthday to your baby as well! April 25 is lucky for us :D

Thanks, Solid! I'm enormously excited to get the card! I was gaming quite satisfactorily with my 4850 and older games until I installed STALKER Pripyat and had to dial down some settings. It was then that I knew I needed an upgraded...but with no cash to do so :( So this one is really heaven sent! :D

Lol, your CPU cooler barely fits. If you added a little bit of duct tape, I'm sure you could make a shroud thus eliminating any air gaps from the exhaust fan.

Yes! The card just arrived courtesy of DHL! There was a slight glitch in the address but I was able to get in touch with DHL. Had to pay US$12 for customs fee, but who cares?!

Can't wait to try this out when I get home on Friday (I'm currently on an out-of-town trip).

THANK YOU GIGABYTE and TWEAK TOWN!!!

(Will post pics when I can borrow a digicam.)

How does the dual fans sound?

anonemus
05-03-2010, 03:41 PM
Extremely quiet, even at 100% compared to my old 4850 fan! Been gaming a lot and temps never reach more than 60c by using ATI's CCC

Lsdmeasap
05-03-2010, 04:04 PM
100% is quiet? Wow, no way?

anonemus
05-03-2010, 04:09 PM
Oopps, what I mean is even at 100% fan load, my 5850 is still quiet compared to my previous 4850.

The dual fans are really quiet (well, relatively speaking as I have 6 120mm fans) and my case is on the floor. That's why I'm curious why some Gigabyte 5850 OC owners are complaining about the noise.

I'm just waiting for Gigabyte to release its F5 BIOS as the F4 version introduces 2D/3D control, but I'm not sure if the power draw is lesser when in 2D mode. Prior to the F4 bios, this card runs at full bore even when in 2D environment
