I have a 2.5mhz guad core and 6gb ram i have a 8800 gt installed and can get my hands on a radion hd 4870 with a aftermarket cooler for $100. Is this worth it?

I would say no, it would not be enough of an upgrade to justify it.

Plus, your Cpu is only at 2.5 Mhz ^^

lol 2.5mhz... i think a 4870 with a decent cooler would be good? You should be able to overclock it well too

the 4870 for $100, and you can sell the 880GT to recoup costs?? I would get it as long as your PSU can support it. Its still a great gaming card.

you can use a 2x 4pin to 6-pin adapter for one of the connections.
