the 8800gts (640) ia a waste of cash it only adds 1-5 fps in most games you might as well downgrade to a 8800gts (320) or upgrade to a gtx

Wouldn't the extra memory help a lot in future games? What about for video playback?

yeah but not enough to really justify the cost increase of getting a 640mb gts. The best bang for your buck is really the 320mb GTS at 250 after MIR. If you want more power, go for a GTX or ultra.
