I've got a 9800 Pro with 128 in this machine, and it's spewing out framerates my monitor can't refresh so I think the 256 is a colossal waste of money at this point in time.

I have the same question. I'm planning on building a new rig. do you think the 128mb will last for like 2 years at least with all the new serious games coming out like HL2 and Doom 3? I want something that'll last couple years at least. so is the 256mb worth it , or even the radeon xt? or is that still overkill?

Yound, you should atleast read the posts before you post. I wouldn't go past a pro 128. That's all there is needed to be told. XT's and 256's won't be able to use there full purpose for a good while. So save your money and get the pro 128.
