Got a bit of a choice to make. I had to RMA this
4850, was too damn hot for my liking. Cost just under £130. 4870s have come down a tad since I bought 4850, looking at a 512 one for £165.
Do you think I`d miss the extra ½ a gig? I use Photoshop quite a bit, wee bit of Bryce and Terragen, or would the faster core and GDDR5 memory just simply make the choice a no brainer? I game on 1680x1050, started playing Far Cry 2 but stopped until I get my replacement card (8600GT just doesn`t hack it).
