    Here is a quote from Anandtech in regards to Video ram on graphics card (taken from today's post about Nvidia's 7800):

    "We don't feel that ATI's 512MB X850 really brings anything necessary to the table, but with this generation we could start to see a real use for 512MB of local memory. MRTs, larger textures, normal maps, vertex textures, huge resolutions, and a lack of hardware compression for fp16 and fp32 textures all mean that we are on the verge of seeing games push memory usage way up. Processing these huge stores of data require GPUs powerful enough to utilize them efficiently. The G70 begins to offer that kind of power. For the majority of today's games, we are fine with 256MB of RAM, but moving into the future it's easy to see how more would help. "

    You heard it from me first. Go with a card that has more video ram. If you have to choose a lower end card to get more ram, I would seriously consider it depending on price and the type of card itself. I would choose BFG's 6200OC 256mb for $150 over a plain 6600 with only 128mb for $109. Again there is a reason the price is higher, and it's not "just to make more money of dumb consumers".
    It's because your card will have a longer, more versitile life. ...nfm

    Without a power GPU, you're not pushing crap through that memory. In order to utilize the ram efficiently, you need something that's going to push data in it like a hoss. That's why you are better off with a more power GPU than larger memory.

    Again thats why I say depending on the card.

    BFG's 6200OC is, for lack of a better description, a monster of a low end card. It's chipset is fantastic and the overclocking ability is phenomenal. A few tweaks here and there, and the decision isn't hard.

    either way it should be good enough for a year or so.. and by that point I really would need a whole new PC anyway...

    Laff, for the stake of arguement. Yawg is once again right. ^_^. 6200 is probably more $$ because of the ram..as you stated, and i didn't bother reading anything else about your post, but thats like saying i paid for this computer system over the other one because it has more Ram while the other system may have a faster chip. Anyway..i see the person made the choice of a 6600. Good choice. While this may i say...6200 fan boy can stick to his BFG card.

    Btw: old pc you say? what are you specs? your comp might not even use msot of that card.

    Ignorance is bliss, so they say.

    Obviously you didn't read my above post before posting your useless dribble. If your going to say someone is right and criticize anothers post and/or claim they are wrong, at least use 2% of your limited brain power and provide some kind of argument and perhaps a brief explaination.

    If you can show me a better low end card that outperforms & overclocks higher, I'd like to see it.

    And by the way, I told him to get whatever he could afford, so long as it had 256mb of ram, because if he didn't, he'll be upgrading his card again at the end of the year. That is, if he wants to play any newer games that come out at a resolution above 800x600.

    I'm not advocating him flaming you, but...

    I guess you've never heard of a 9600 or 9550. It'll overclock great and outperform a 6200 in most games. It's also cheaper than even the models with less than 256MB of RAM. They also come in 256MB models. The only advantages the 6200 has is Doom 3 in and of itself, because nVidia 6xxx cards generally perform much better than 9xxx and Xxxx cards from ATI in the same price range, and the fact that the 6200 has Pixel Shader 3.0, which can greatly improve image quality in several existing games and most upcoming ones. Other than that, a 9600/9550 will overclock amazingly and outperform a 6200 in pretty much everything from Doom 3.

    As for playing a game at 800x600, the 6200 can't handle most newer engines above 1024x768, so I wouldn't expect it to handle better engines in the near future at anything but 800x600, and then 640x480, while plenty of 128MB cards will handle them at 1024x768 well into 2007 and maybe longer.

    I did say that i did not bother to read your post didn't i? Ignorance is bliss...therefore i am who i am. People have there opinions and i will blunting say that a suggestion for a 6200 256mb over a 6600 128mb is stupid.

    EDIT: Hi yawg, its usaully us arguing against each other. =D

    It is? Nah, we don't argue that much... But for old time's sake...

    "I'd recommend a 6800 non-ultra non-GT. It's a good card for the money and fits nicely between the 9800 Pro and 6800GT. blah blah blah..."

    I actually would recommend it if it's in the budget, though that'll near $200, while a 6600GT is closer to $150.

    BTW, where have you been lately? You haven't posted much here or at Beefy's in a while.

    Its from high to low. I threw in a 6600 256mb just to satify relic.
    To answer your question yawg, i don't post at beefy cause half the time i am always late for the posts..and i to lazy to read through all of em and knowing what is going on.
