downgrade or keep it
 
well i have a buyer for my 4870x2 video card he is giving me $330 cash.
do u guys think i can get a decent card for around $130 im not a big time gamer i only play racing games.
or should i just keep my 4870x2 video card?

btw my i7 is sold for parts so im basicly downgrading.

agreed, go with the EVGA, you can overclock it yourself. B
both have good deals on rebate though.
