Sorry pal, I'm not trying to pick a fight with you, but you may want to work on your communication skills a little. Not only did you mention 512MB cards in a thread where several users (not me) had already referenced the 4870 before you had posted, but you had also specifically referenced ATI at least twice in your arguments about a 512MB frame buffer being insufficient.

With that, I'll drop out of this thread. Didn't intend for it to get off topic like this.
