    Hey folks... Your .02 appreciated

    For use in OS X, is there any benefit for using 1GB 4870 vs a 512MB 4870? I'm running a single 2560x1600 30" Dell LCD.

    I have an Apple 512MB 4870, a HIS 512MB 4870 and a XFX 1GB 4870.

    Thanks!

    What are you doing? Gaming? Video editing?

    If not, then not really any difference.
