Re: Graphic Card Dilemma
Memory doesn't mean much. There are 8500 GT's with 1 Gig of GDDR2. Does that mean they out perform 4870's with 512MB of GDDR5?
Its the Cores that matter not the ram as much. Which is why the GTX 280 with 1GB GDDR3 is still able to outperform a single 4870 with 1GB of GDDR5.
Graphics Cards are like CPU's. Older graphics cards have older and slower cores. While the 9800 GTX+, 4850, 4830, 4870, GTX 260, and etc. Those cards are able to handle more graphic intensive gaming due to the improvements made to the GPU cores over time.
