Default Graphics card conundrum

I ordered a 256MB Power Color Radeon 9600 PRO, and as a replacement got a 128Mb Excalibur (HiS) Radeon 9600XT Classic. I also got the new card at the price of the Power Color (a discount of about 20 pounds or something). On a low budget, I went for the cheapest 9600 256mb card thinking it would help with large Half Life 2 textures and stuff but this new card has much faster clock and memory speeds. So is it worth the hassle of sending it back for the extra memory, what's the extra 128mb worth (considering the hefty discount)?
