Google Earth at max settings - 4870 512mb or 4850 1gb? Tags: Graphics Cards Google Earth Quad Core Hewlett Packard Workstations Graphics Last response: July 22, 2010 5:08 PM in Graphics & Displays Share gajones July 22, 2010 3:42:12 PM I've picked up a 2 year old HP XW4600 Quad core workstation, which I'm planning to give to my father to replace his old P4 Dell. He loves using Google Earth, and so I'd like to put a graphics card that will allow it to run at 1900 x 1080 on maximum settings (4xAA, 32 bit textures, Anisotropic filtering on high) I was considering either a Radeon 4850 1gb or a 4870 512mb. Any thoughts?

It doesn't stress the GPU at all. Getting better internet service to download the slides would improve performance much more. | Report abuse ct1615 Graphics card Master July 22, 2010 5:08:04 PM get the ATI 4350, there will be no difference in google earth and you can save yourself some money...take dad out to lunch | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>Google Earth at max settings - 4870 512mb or 4850 1gb?> Related ressources: ForumHelp me pick 4870 512mb 4850 or 4870 1gb ?
