    It's a ridiculous card anyways. It's 2gb's of GDDR3 limited by a 256 bit bus. The 1gb of GDDR5 on a 256 bit bus is not restricted on the 4870 and is a much better buy.

    yea true I may change my whole upgrade thoughts now, I was kinda looking to the 2gb, but I guess its a joke. wonder what crossfire would have brought with 2gb though probably not much.

    This is true I'm looking to upgrade to either 2 4850 1gb's single slots, or just add another 4850 at 512mb, Actually I got another one I'm thinking about but that may cost too much

    Hi all. I ordered my card yesterday!!

    Guess what, i was sure about buying 4870 1GB at $239.9. But...the elusive but....i changed my decision at the last moment, and guess what, i am going to the greener side instead of the red side......:eek:

    Yup, i ordered a standard EVGA GTX 260/216 core for a drool price :D
