Default Upgrade to 4670?

I can get a Sapphire HD4670 for 60.00

Now I will only buy it if it will outperform my x1950pro

The specs look good but the 128 mem interface is what is kinda stumping me

What do you guys think?

Well for only $60 you cant go wrong. The X1950 Pro is a bit better than the 8600, and the 4670 is almost twice as good as the 8600.

ATI HD 4670 512MB GDDR3 Video Card Review

So I would say go for it!

If you want a 256bit card, you can't go wrong with a 4830. This one is $110.00 after rebate. NCIX.com - Buy Powercolor Radeon HD 4830 575MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ GDDR3 HDMI DVI TV-OUT PCI-E Video Card - AX4830 512MD3-H In Canada.

What's the rest of your rig specs, as well as your gaming resolution?

If you click his sig link, it's a E5200 @ 3.32GHz and 2GB RAM.

I'd say the HD4670 would be a decent improvement over the X1950Pro. And for $60, can't go wrong IMO. Though if you have the money, definitely get a HD4830 instead as it'll be better now and in the future.

Go for the 4670! That's a great card at $60.
