The memory vs speed debate may be different when it comes to folding. That is, when the 2x00 series are added to the supported list of cards.

:plthumbsd I am actually disappointed in the review. Does the reviewer think that all any one does is play games? Did anyone stop to wonder why there might be 2 DVI ports on this card? Was there any thought to compare performance between the 256Mb card and 512Mb card in a dual-monitor setup?

You tested heat and power, great! What about noise? Some graphics cards have fans that are louder than CPU fans! Who wants that?

People simply have to remember that on a mid-range card raw speed is generally better than more memory.On a dual-monitor set up too?
The most important thing to remember is to buy smart! I agree 100%. It would be nice if readers could go somewhere to get the information they need to make an informed decision. :(
