im not ranting, im responding to you. which is responding to me. takes 2 to dance. you might want to look in a mirror. also, name calling? really?http://www.overclock.net/ati/401321-4870-512mb-vs-1gb-comparison.html
crysis warhead, 1920x1200 8xAA... the 1 gig card more than DOUBLES the fps of the 512 meg card. in many cases it just pads on 6-10 fps. which, is a lot in terms of high end videocard comparisons.
i should also point out, in those benchmarks, the 512 meg card is clocked higher.
i feel i had information to offer. and i did. wasnt ranting. it was helpful. you just dont agree. (and are wrong.)
