    Just the normal 4gb version, I don't see a difference between the 2 except the price and a pathetic 50MHZ overclock:shadedshu:shadedshu

    Thats cool bro. The normal one comes with the same huge cooler right? :) So probably you can manually OC it to Toxic speeds.

    :twitch: They both have pretty much the same clock speeds. :wtf: I thought the normal 4GB one had the same clocks as the 2GB one. :eek: So the "TOXIC" part is just for the show lol. Total ripoff. I hope the ASUS ares is cheaper than the toxic :cool: So did you already purchase the 4gb one? :p
