well i think it would make more sense in 3dmark to have higher clock speeds rather then higher memory just cause its a lower res and higher gRAM is really noticable on higher res stuff.

It's a marketing gimmick. People who aren't as tech savvy, would be tricked into buying it because they think "ooo...wow...it's got 1GB of memory. Must be good."

The 8800GT has a 256-bit memory interface, which can't use that 1GB efficiently. You'd need like a 512-bit memory interface to effectively use 1GB.

^^ exactly, but turn on the AA (no not anti-air Anti-aliasing), maybe crank the resolution up and the results change then
