if it were me, i would wait. soon the 512's should come out, and that will last you a while...with computers, if some thing new is coming out soon, it is always best to wait, even if you can't, also it's best to wait a few months after it's been out just so that any problems that there were can be fixed.

yeah, this is to everyone who doesn't know this...with computers, you have to always stay one or two steps ahead of what's out, it never hurts to wait a few months for some thing way better then what you just bought right now...just a word of advise...waiting is good in the computer world, lol.

its like my thing with the optical drives . . .

i was so excited when 8x DVD+R came out . . .

then i heard 12x was coming out, so i waited . . .

then the fact that 2.4x DL was coming, so i planned to wait longer

then the fact that 16x w/ 2.4DL was coming so i planned to wait longer

then that 16x w/ 4xDL was coming, so planned to wait longer

then that 16x w/8xDL is coming, so im still waiting . . .

please, dont let it go to 16xDL!

Dude, he's talking about 256BIT not 256MB of VRAM.
