Will the extra memory give it any advantage over the 1GB model?

Its only really beneficial in Batman and L4D. For the others its just an extra frame or three. Oddly enough, its the same price as the 1GB Toxic edition...

I'd like to know the differences in Eyefinity between the 2gb and 1gb cards, as thats where the benefit will come into play IMO

I have this card (HD5850 Toxic 2GB), I run 'Arma 2' on it and it runs very well. The fps can vary from 110+ down to 25+ depends on island (map) your playing and clutter, city or open area (also V-sync disabled, ingame). Overall the card is great, would recommend it to anyone wanting a card to handle heavy games, like 'Arma 2'.
