Default GPU Differences

Hey! Me again, sorry for any inconveinence but I'm still pricing parts on my system. Props to VINMAN for helping me out! I was comparing Graphics Cards and I wanted to ask about them here. Tell me what you think

ATI Radeon 4850 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ords%29&Page=2

ATI Radeon 4670 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...ords%29&Page=2

I know the second one seem's a little outdated and runs at 128BIT vice the first one running at 256BIT, but they are both 1GB DDR3. Anything?

I personally have the Radeon 4850 HD and it runs like a champ. I have only had issues in a few of the newer games, but for the price, no complaints here!

Edit: When I say issues with newer games, I don't mean they won't run, there's just sometimes a small decrease in the FPS when running on High.

Forget the 4670 completely.

Out of the two go with the 4850. Although better still would be the 4870 or 4890 if you can stretch it.

I'll only be playing World of Warcraft and other Blizzard games on this computer. I should have said that in the beginning. My bad!

World of Warcraft runs on high on mine just fine, I've tested SC2 and there's a little bit of choppiness when you scroll in to view the 'close up' of your units but overall gameplay is fantastic. We'll have to see what Diablo 3 looks like.

My last card was a 4870, but I have used the 4850, I can also vouch for that one - it's a great card!
