I have a Sapphire HD4870 1GB DDR5. photo:
And this is Sapphire HD4870 1GB DDR5 TOXIC. photo:

They both have the same look. 3 heatpipes and a black cover. but there are some stickers on TOXIC including Vapor-X.
I read in an article that Vapor-X are those 3 pipes and TOXIC is Overclocked. 30 MHz core and 100 MHZ memory.

I bought my 4870 30$ cheaper than TOXIC and as it appears the only diffrence is Frequencies. I can OC my card myself with ATI Overdrive, so why should I pay 30$ more?
If there is any other diffrence and I'm wrong, plz post it.

the Toxic has a better cooler albeit, not by much, why don't you just oc your card to the toxic's settings ?

No, I am pretty sure the toxic has copper heatpipes and the other has alum.
