of course the only metal on metal in the box for me would be on the heat sink or when I use the screwdriver on the screw for the graphics card. I like zip ties

(The HD4800 series card supports OpenCL version 1.0. I think Milky Way requires version 1.1******* Nope. I have several hosts with HD4850 GPUs (OpenCL 1.0) that have been crunching continuously here for a long time without problems. Here is one that joined up back in May 2009.)

true, but I could not get it to work(get a computation error) with windows 10, tried downloading the old driver too(13.4 cat. and would not work).
windows 7, yes no issues

i finally settled for an HD5850 1GB DDR5 - seems to be a little more stable.

currently i have 2 4670's but i am swapping those out with two 4850's so i will be able to run milky way. i chose the 4850's caz the wattage is lower than most of the others(110 watts each) the 4670 wattage is 70 each. i got a good deal.., is there a better card or is the 4850 a good choice? anyone?
