More about : 1gb 512mb deciding cyber_jockey December 27, 2008 6:23:50 AM If 1600×1200 is max of your screen then 60 dollars isn't worth it. Dekasav December 27, 2008 6:36:54 AM If it's the HD 4850 like I suspect, definitely the 512mb one. It doesn't have the power to drive 1gb, and a res of 1680x1050 is low enough that on the HD 4870 it wouldn't make a difference, either. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
