Hi all!


I'll be quick - I want to buy the ATI 4870 and I dont know if the difference of 30$ more for 1GB memory is justified. I'll use the card not only for gaming, but also for graphic , motion, 3d modeling software (all the demanding s*ity programs in this field)


What do u thinK?

Every application is different, so it's hard to say whether or not you'll benefit from the extra memory. Generally speaking, if you run 2560x1600, you'll almost certainly need 1GB, if you run at 1920x1200 or 1920.x1080, you'll likely benefit from it at some point. Lower resolutions probably won't benefit at all.
