its all up to the mods if they wanna make two lists, although i think thats a great idea cos a lot of ppl get 512mb cards when they dont even need it and think they will perform better than the 512 at same resolution.

the problem is that at lower resolutions your CPU power will show up a lot more in the performance (or lack thereof) side of things .

you have to understand that this ranking is not a bible. It's a general guideline that should be LOOSLEY. You are a bit biased with owning an 8800GT 256 and thats reasonable however most people play at 1280x1024 and above these days which makes anything above that much more common than any resolution lower. Sure a lot of the cards at 1280x1024 are different rankings than what is posted however once again once they go above and beyond the ones with more memory start to pull ahead a bit, so therefore these ranking appeal more to the people who look at them becuase there is a much more likely chance anymore for someone to have a higher resolution than the standard 1280x1024 than the outdated 1026x768 or so. Does that make sense? You should ALWAYS check benchmarks and ask questions to really figure out which car is right for you and your system and thats what I'm going to have to have added so people understand this.

yeah I am playing CoD4 right now 1680x1050 everything on max quality including the ATI slider....running 6xAA and it's using 440mb memory.

256mb doesn't cut it if you like ALL the eyecandy on

Exactly....for anything larger than 1280x1024, and even now 1280x1024 is becoming in need for more than 256 memory to get a good amount of settings.

Still anyone can take an HD3850 256, overclock it, put on 2xFSAA and maybe 6XAF and still play games beautifully at 128x1024. However Anyone with 1680x1050 and above really can't put much AA or AF on at all becuase the memory usage starts to pile up hindering performance greatly. This is why the ranking are how they are with cards with more memory beating out higher clocked ones with lower becuase the majority of PC owners these days with those cards have at LEAST a 17inch monitor while many now have a 20+ where as very few still play with a 15.

yeah, and when I was running 1440x900 which is less than 1280x1024 I was using around 340mb with the same settings.

actually it's slighlty more pixels to fill but that doesn't matter the point stays the same that if you want to run lots of FSAA and FSAF on games then 256mb just won't cut it and thats what a lot of these rankings are based on...games at full quality just as review sites do. Not to say that someone with an 8800gt 256 and a 1440x900 res can't get EXCELLENT FPS from a game like CoD4 but you can understand.

1440x900 = 1296000

1280x1024 = 1310720

= about 11% more pixels to fill @ 1280x1024

oh wow i remember doing a calculation and i guess i mixed up the two. Heh i stand corrected. I love 1440x900 becuase it's pixel count is so low compared to the beauty of the screen. My 8800GT 512 and old E6300 @ 3.56ghz works just fine.
