Its ok you can call me a fanboy cause im very much so a fanboy! But im one of the smart ppl that know that more ram on a video card slows it down. Most games dont even use a full 128 let alone 256 or 512. Im just looking at even MORE speed from the GTX let alone 24 pipes out does 16 in any book you read.
EDIT:
Beefcake you gotta realize Farcry is getting old now. If im not mistaken it was out before Doom3. Of course HL2 is going to have a bigger compatibility than Farcry. But like the guy said its not about video cards becaue he said specificaly that he will make up his own mind about video cards.

Ehhh... More RAM slows down traditional PCI video cards, but not AGP video cards, and certainly not PCIEx16 video cards.

IT dosent matter what interface it is. Its just like system ram, the more ram you have unalliocated then it will slot it down. Especialy on a video card.
