Personally I would go for the GDDR4, but some people would just get the GDDR3.
You will get something of a performance boosst from the GDDR4. How much that is I don't know but there will be one.

There really isn't that much of a noticeable difference between a card running GDDR4 and GDDR3. Naturally the GDDR4 is faster, but were only talking maybe a 5% difference.

True.
The one I posted has better cooling though it looks like.
It should be very good for overclocking.

I checked back today and it says "Item deactivated"

You also mentioned the 4830. Is that one better than the 4670? Or am i getting into loud power hungry territory...?

New egg has it at about the same price after rebate.

That will do. The reviews don't seem to indicate that it's loud and it will run fine on a 450W power supply.
