Question.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am ordering a 4870 512mb, how well should i expect it to perform with my current setup?
Will i be able to turn everything on at 1680x1050?
From what ive read im certain i should be able to.

also, if i order now what are the chances i will get the card by christmas, if its guaranteed 3 day service shipping from the egg?

thanks.
lol?!

If you haven't ordered it yet, get a 4870 1GB. The 4870 is powerful enough that the extra 512mb of GDDR5 really helps it and will make it fly! Regardless, it will definitely give you a big performance increase.

you'll defiantly see a big jump in performance, but not Phenominal, you should be able to run everything on max except for the specialty crap graphic engines, like Crysis, great looking, COULD run better with better engine, blah blah

You should be able to run most games at max graphics settings at 1680x1050, except for games like Fallout 3 and Crysis which would be running in the 15-20FPS range at those settings.

And the 1GB only really helps vs. the 512MB if you're playing at insane resolutions, otherwise the price difference isn't worth it.

I have an HD4850 and I can run pretty much everything on all high settings 1680 x 1050. The FPS is neither high or stable but it runs. I'd blame that on the rest of my system though, not the card. I don't even have 2.0 lol

If you don't want 1Gb version, just order the 512Mb one, and if you need more, you can crossfire it with another one.

I just got my 4870 1GB as well. I, like you, have a samsung monitor at 1680x1050.

Will post some of my own results as well when I finish installing crysis!
