...and all that time we said "Get 320 for playing games in resolutions under 1680 x 1050, and anything over, get the 640."

I don't understand how this is possible. That is like paying $100 more to get an extra frame per second. I guess I will be getting the 320 megabyte version instead of the 640 after seeing this.
