ohhh, the amount of RAM is almost a meaningless number when it comes to comparing graphics cards, just b/c the ATI has 512mb of RAM doesn't mean its better, what matters is if its 128 bit RAM or 256, core speed/frequency etc. you get the point........

yeah, but the ati should have better image quality no? and for speed its hard to say which is better.....need a video card to hold me over until g80...thats why i only wanna spend 150$...then i can throw it into another computer later

so right now im gonna go with the x1600 256 version (since the 512 doesnt make much difference) for 140$ cdn..is it worth 30$ for the 512?

if anyone has any other ideas of cards around this price range ....

because im comparing it to a 7600gs...not gt...at the store its 169$ cdn for either the 512 x1600pro or 7600gs (no fan version). I picked the x1600....it works great very impressed. Vivo is nice... always used nvidia but i felt i had to support the canadian guys this time.
