I am looking to buy a new GPU, and I'm a bit limited on money. I need help deciding which card to get. I mainly play call of duty 4 and 5 right now and its on the lowest settings, with no AA. And i get around 30 FPS average. My friend has the XFX 4850 1GB, and he plays on high and it looks amazing. I have a 17" monitor. So I am just wondering will the difference in 512MB and 1Gb make an impact on the graphics. Its only a 10 dollar diffence but, I am very limited on money. Also what does the ram mean in GPU's. Any suggestions will be great, thanks.

Do you have any suggestions for the 4670 card? Thanks guys this is greatly appreciated. Or actually which card would you suggest I get doesnt matter which one it is. Thanks
 
For that system, I'd say go for a 4850. I think they are only $100 or so, and you never know what your future needs will be. A 4850 I think would give better "balance" to your system (in other words, all the components would be pretty good). And really, even at 1280x1024, a 4850 can still be slowed down. I have two systems with 4850s going to 1280x1024 monitors, and there are games (albeit at high settings) where they are just enough card.
