    Default Video Card Memory?

    This is probley a simple question for most people, but ive been shopping for a new videocard and basicly ive Decided on the the 9800 Pro and the ATI Silencer, its a cheap way for alot of power in a card. Plus im gonna really overclock it. Anyways, the question i had was anbout videocard memory. How does videocard memory actually effect gaming performance? Is it worth it going for the 256MB card?

    Not with the 9800 Pro. The 256mb version's DDR2 memory generates too much heat, and the extra memory isnt really any good unless you use 1280x1024 or above with 6xFSAA, or 1600x1200 and above with 4xFSAA
