Get the cheaper 512mb model. | Report abuse Yuka Graphics card Authority September 20, 2008 1:47:38 AM Uhm... The 1Gb model is aimed towards the XFire crowd with hell-big resolutions. So, if you play in a 30" display at max res, you *might* want the 1Gb version, but we would slap face you, lol. At that kinda res, you might want a 4870X2 or a GTX280, or a couple of those Anyway, in a range of res below 1900x1200, the difference, like dagger said, isn't worth it right now. Maybe in the "near" future we'll see more vram demanding games Esop! | Report abuse eklipz330 September 20, 2008 2:03:11 AM lol.... some other dude posted the same topic yesterday | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>512MB 4850 vs 1GB 4850> Related ressources: Forum4850 1gb vs 4870 512mb ForumATI 4850 ( 1GB ) VS NVDIA 250 GTS ( 512MB )?
