    How big of a difference does the 128bit and 256bit memory make?

    in GFX cards, I would go with 128, search the forums, it's been reasoned why about a million times

    he said BITS not megabytes...

    if you actually mean mb, then kailweiler is right, but if you did mean bits then 256bit would theoretically be twice as fast, although in real world u wont notice twice as fast...

    oops, thought he meant mb&#33;
    lol my mistake
    anyway....
    yeah common sense would tell you 256 is theoretically twice as fast as 128 right?? theoretically....
    but in mb, for gfx cards, they use lower quality ram for the 256 and no games these days use 256 anyway...that&#39;s only if you were talking about gfx cards to begin with lol

    It is not a requirement that your motherboard has support for DDR2 RAM, being utilised for a GPU - but if you were to use DDR2 in a DIMM, it would be an issue.

    Dont get DDR2, much worse latency then DDR. (slower) Get the first one. Only 6 more bucks for alot better card. 5900XT is alot better then those other Ultras.

    I see, But the core and effective speed is faster.... so does that make a difference at all?

    I know, myself, I wouldn&#39;t get any XT card from nVidia, they are just dumbed down versions of the regular card, like the SE cards are for ATI
    XT are awesome for Radeons, but terrible for nVidia cards
    I&#39;d either save some money up and get the regular 5600 or go 9800 Radeon if you can

    but the 5900xt, although its a scaled down version of the 5900, still gives better performance than the regular 5800 and lower, and better than the 5700ultra and lower.

    what i recomend you do, is find a card which is around the maximum of your price range, then check out the pinned graphics card guide to see how it performs next to all the others youve found, and see whic would be best performance:money ratio.
