Default gts 250 512MB vs 1GB

Any real difference guys? From what little I could gather off the reviews the 1Gb only really makes any difference at higher res and it can sli with 9800gtx. I dumped my 9800gtx that i had for my wifes comp, some guy offered me more than i could turn down. Want to get something that will work as a backup card for my folding rig should the 9800gtx or the 8800gts' in there die on me....or might just swap it in for the 9800gtx to free up a pcie power supply.

Any input is appreciated.

The real difference, like you mentioned, is in higher resolutions. Otherwise, there's not much of one.

That's a general rule of thumb by the way. 1GB= Good for high resolutions. 512MB= Good for lower resolutions like 1280x1024.

Cool, so I take it that shouldn't have any real affect on ppd for folding?
