The point is, I have used my 4870 for about 8 months and I think it's a good deal. Any ideas? thx More about : upgrade 4870 4890 vapor jyjjy March 27, 2010 3:25:01 PM Eh, $50 is a bit much for an extra 15-20% performance imo. If you are going to upgrade the HD5850 is what you should be looking at. atomicprince11 March 27, 2010 3:28:42 PM 5850 is more expensive than that.
