The 4870 is 1gb of DDR5 RAM. The 4850 is 512mb of DDR3.
The 4870 is a no brainer and I would have gotten it if I could have found it available. I think the 4850 will tide me over for a while now though.
I agree that min FPS > all, but I haven't seen dips like that on my card yet. Not even in Age of Conan which makes COD4 look weak.
