Well I had a dream that DX10 mode was faster than DX9 mode... So, personally, I don't think the memory is that important.

GPU: MSI GTX 260 @ 650MHz/1175MHz
CPU: Intel E6750 @ 3.4GHz/1.33v/60c
HSF: Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
SND: Creative Audigy 4
SPK:Logtech X-540s
MOS: Logitech MX600 Wireless Laser
LCD: HANNS-G 28" Widescreen

memory is important if you are using a high resolution. if not then the memory is not a big big part. do it, get the 8800gts

Because the benchmarks show the exact same results except for when you run at 1600x1200.

I've decided not to do it yet... My games are running fine so far and I want to wait for the release of the new Nvidia and Ati cards.
