True enough... HD 4870 is a godly card.

Alright, thanks for the feedback.

I'm gonna get that memory (looks much better , thanks).

And since the 4870 is just a tad more expensive, I'll go ahead and get it but what brand (XFX, Power Color, etc).

Ditto. XFX has a lifetime warranty, where as Sapphire has a two year one. Asus and MSI offer a three year. I think Powercolor is only a one year, maybe two. Either way, XFX is the way to go for ATI cards.
