    Default i'm a spoiled brat: should I upgrade a 7800GTX to the 512mb version?

    Money is of no concern, my comp is awesome anyways, but what benefits would I get if I changed my XFX 7800gtx to a XFX 7800GTX 512?

    Dam i wish i had that money, well the 7800 can already run everything on high and i don't see any game that would fully use 512 mb. Your card already owns...why don't you run SLI

    Doom 3, Quake 4, and Battlefield 2 will actually see decreased loading times from the extra video memoy while running on Ultra or High texture levels, repsectively. You'd also manage to get almost every single game above the 72FPS level (FEAR being the major exception). Granted you would get more out of SLI as AsianBatman said. Also, if you overclocked your 7800GTX to the same speeds as the 512MB version (it has higher core and memory in addition to more memory), you would get about the same performance in most games as the 512MB version.

    Considering that it's impossible, I really can't imagine if I put it in SLI.

    You said SLI, not Crossfire.

    Besides, the 512MB 7800GTX is a bit better than an X1800 XT, just $100-$150 more expensive. That said, if you're already able to spend over $1000 on video cards, $1500 is nothing.

    ~$750 x 2 = $1500




    But I would get some serious cooling on the your GTX and seeing just how far you could take it. It's the same core as the 512(just more refined as their process has matured).

    I would also rather go with the 512 before getting another 256. SLI is still not where it needs to be as far as proper shader rendering and compatibility with some of the games I play.
