    OK I've been looking at this and I saw a sapphire radeon 9600pro 128 and 256. So i'm thinking would the 256 be even a little more faster than the 128 or just completely slower than 128?
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    Check the RAM specs. Some higher MB models use slower RAM.

    In the future games to come, it would have to use the 256.
    I have a video card that does have 128M works great .

    ya its good, dont buy the 256mb because by the time 256mb video ram is actually needed you will probably be buying a faster video card anyway, plus the higher sized ram is usually slower.

    Having more memory on a graphics card mainly helps save resources(mobo memory).

    Why waste your system memory processing video data?

    But, having more memory on a graphics card will not necessarily create a performance increase. Especially if you have alot of system memory.

    /my 2 cents
