False advertising.. anyone up for a mass lawsuit?

I'd say go for the 4870 or 260 Gtx, or just wait a couple of weeks and see how the r700(2Gb gddr5) performs. I really don't think you can go wrong this time around - each card certainly offers good performance for the price. The gtx 280 at that price would offer the least amount of performance per buck, but if you want to have the latest and greatest that's the only way to go.

The 512mb isn't really anything that you should be concerned about as it seems that the card performs really well even when AA comes into play at higher resolutions.
