Why you get a 512mb card? The 256 can go even up to 1680x1050 and not break a sweat.

Thanks guys!

I got this card for only £8 more than the cheapest 256MB card on the market (its from CCLs cost cutting crazy promotion), so its worth the extra money for a whole 256MB more frame buffer and the higher clocks, IMO.

The 512mb card will definately benefit you in the long run compared to the 256mb card though.

Thats a nice deal. I just put one in my cart and was about to purchase...but then took a look at my credit card balance.

Gotta pay some stuff off.
