This might sound like a bad result for MSI Radeon HD 3850 OC but that wouldn't be true. MSI Radeon HD 3850 OC is more of a mid-range video card which is available over 10% cheaper than the His Radeon HD 3870. MSI Radeon HD 3850 OC delivered some great performances at normal quality settings with Enemy Territory Quake Wars and Unreal Tournament 3 which equalled the performance shown by the His Radeon HD 3870 which is impressive!"
