because if you give a gpu too much memory to handle.. it screws it up.. therefore the 128 is better because its not overloaded with stuff


my guess on it atleast??

The one at Newegg is a dual 6600GT. I think. It's kind of weird...

But anyways, yeah, completely not worth it.


You can get a 6800 for $199 after a mail-in rebate.
