I have sli 8800gts 512 @ 1680 x 1050 E8600 @ 4.2Originally posted by: SlowSpyder
I do not agree with that statement. There is certainly benefit to the 1GB model, especially if you like AA or are using a 1980x1200 monitor. But even a 512MB card can still game pretty damn well these days.Originally posted by: schneiderguy
4870 1gb or gtx 260/gtx 260-216
The 512mb 4870 shouldn't even be in consideration... 512mb of memory isn't enough.
Good luck with your new card! I'm really enjoying my 4870 so far.Originally posted by: calvinet
Thanks very much for all the advice. I'm going with the cheaper 4870 1GB.
and vista logs reports error (I think 500 )-system out of vram hard drive thrashing has occured.
-in warhead , farcry2 , clearsky should have added that.
-had enough fps but still had to turn down settings
-512 vram you can live with if you have it , but I won't tell anyone to buy a card with 512vram today
-shortly 1gig won't be enough -per reviews of the gtx295
