Is it worth paying $70 more for a card that can be upped to 1GHz+ if I just play games like CoD4 and Assassain's Creed?

toxic 4890 = $259.99 .

They haven't made a PC game that would make me spend that lind of loot on a video card.

If you can get something that will play the same games gor $70, kess I say save the money.

What I'm saying is if you can get a video card for $70, less that will play your games as well why spend the extra 70 ?

What is the main difference between the "toxic 4890" & the other card ?
[Besides a cool sounding name]

Will the added memory really make that big of a difference ?

The fact is the hardware manufacturers are way ahead of the software, even games, as it is.
