Just becuase it is 2GB doesn't make it a better card. It's just a gimmik to trick people into buying their higher priced products

doesnt seem to perform any better than the 4870 1gb or the GTX 260 core 216 from these reviews

OverClockers club 4870 2gb reviews

DriverHeaven 4870 2gb reviews

I wouldn't exactly call it a gimmick. It's more VRAM that kicks in at extremely high resolutions.

actually according to the reviews and benchmarks I saw it didn't even make a big difference at all even at the higher resolutions well i mean it did a little better but not enough to justify that much of a price.

You will see a bit of difference between a 1GB variant of a card compared to a 512MB varient, but probably not a 2GB. It's just a marketing ploy.

It doesn't really matter, the GTX 260 Core 216 and the HD 4870 1GB both perform similarly. Take your pick.
