I'm currently debating on graphics cards.
I like the IQ4+ by HIS series because of they're low temperature settings.
I'm not sure if I should buy the 4850 1gb version for 210 before rebate or 4870 512mb version for 259...
I'm using a 20" widescreen lcd monitor... at 1680x1050...
I like to play fps like CoD4... benchmarks show that the 4870 is ahead.. but at my resolution should i go for the 1gb?
also i was considering the 1gb will help for future with newer games.. but then again the 4870 will be faster...

HD 4870 because its more powerful and the extra more memory of HD 4850 wont help it alot to catch
