ok.... so its only equal to a 1gb version?

so a 512mb 4870 would be inferior?

it might be a little less at higher resoltions.

A lot of people own a core 216, i say trust them and get one of the core 216 because from what i hear, they overclock like a champ

From the benchmarks I've seen, it's about a 5 FPS difference between the 512MB and 1GB 4870. You're still better off with the 1GB though if the price isn't much higher. You also may want to look into the GTX 260 Core 216.

Doesn't sound like a whole lot of difference to me, not enough to worry about anyway.
