Now If I upgrade to an hd 4870 will there be a diff in my games or should I get a better card
@ googlemebaby2004: You will see an increase, particularly in graphics heavy games and with AA/AF enabled but I do n't think the gains will be worth the expense.
I still think it would be better to stay where you are and set the money aside for a full upgrade at a later date.
