I just ordered this one.....

Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H467QS1GP Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Am pretty confident I'll be ok here. the 3870 shows higher numbers but I think over all, this is the best bang for my buck.

I also doubled my ram. Should help some too =)

Hopefully no more lag in WoW (wishful thinking I know)

Right on, that's the card I am running x2 in CF. TBH the only difference I can notice from the 3870 is in benchmarks. Saves you some power.

Great deal if you ask me!!

At this price, It is your choice! For a 256 bits card it is the deal! And don't forget the 4670 have only 128 bit!
