Thats not actually the toxic edition. i think newegg just mixed up the pictures for the respective cards
how can you tell?
That's not the toxic.
Cooler looks very similar, but no toxic branding, and the packaging is wrong.
And yes, I've seen it in the flesh, so unless someone has changed things, it ain't it.

Still a great deal on a 4870 though, just wish Sapphire offered a lifetime warranty. One year kinda sucks.
is the cooler the same?
No, the Toxic version has "Vapor X techology". Some kind of closed chamber liquid cooling..
