Default quick question

hello, i'm about to build my own computer soon and i am planning on buying a Geforce 8800 GTS, would there be a huge performance difference between the 320 mb version and the 640 mb version of the same card? :freak:

^Yea....If you play at resolutions lower than 1600 x 1200, then the 320 will do good. If you play over that, then 640.

i play at 1440x900 right now but i still would go for the 640 as its only a little less then 100 bucks more and its more future proof, well thats if you wanna play games like crysis when it comes out at semi high settings

Agreed! I was torn between the 320 and the 640 and eventually decided to go with the later.
