I think it's a total waste on an 8800GT... I think it would be much better suited to a GTX / Ultra with the wider memory bus. Plus, I don't know many people that are going to be playing games at the kind of resolutions required to eat up that much memory on an 8800GT, probably not gonna play all that well.

Nice try Gainward, I'm sure you'll get a few noobs to buy it.

I'd be interested to see benches. The extra ram might make a difference after all! If it does, should be a quality card.

Just about to say that SBB!

Frag has a fair point.. but I would like to see some benchies before I make my decision.

Maybe a review in the future?

Pointless imo, I agree with frag it would suit the ultra/GTX more

Some extreme resolutionists may find it usefull. But I think they`d struggle to use a gig.

Thought the 768 was a bit much tbh.

Don`t see the GTX types needing it anymore than the others, it`s mostly for mapping graphic info than anything to do with speed.

It`ll sell.

Its useless, 2900xt 512mb compared to 2900xt 1gb, no difference on ANYTHING beacuse nothing uses 1gb of memory.

Absolutly useless.
