QFT, same way I feel too. I hate how just 1 example of a 320mb GTS vs the 640 in results test makes everyone think vram is useless. This kinda happened with the whole P5N-E 650i vs the 680i. Just cause the 650i barely won 1 SLI test, everyone thought it was light years ahead of the 680i mobo.

you do realize when they charge you the cards they are using MSRP prices ( which are ALWAYS higher then retail prices )...so do the math before you think the step up program is such a great plan

no...cause if it was they wouldn't call it an 8700...too me this card is kinda unnecessary but I guess they wanted to fill the gap between the 8600s and 8800s ( which was a HUGE gap ). Still thought the least I would recommend is a GTS, and the most I would recommend is an ultra if the prices are near a GTX.

VR-Zone : Technology Beats - Nvidia G92 Card is 9-inch Long

G92 is 9-inch long same length as the GeForce 8800 GTS, but it is single slot

So that means that 8700GTS is half the size of 8800GTS because 8800GTS is dual slot
