Is it possible to x-fire connect a 1gig 4870 to a 512 4870 card? Is it wise to do so? I have the 1 gig card and am looking at a 512 on sale.

You can do it, but it will behave like 2 512MB cards in crossfire, and if you are at a high enough resolution to need 2 4870s you also likely need that 1GB frame buffer.

Just like Hunter said above, yes you can, but both of your card only use 512MB. :)
