[QUOTE=phanbuey;532023][QUOTE=DarkMatter;531654]Have a look at this article and decide how much memory is needed nowadays.
great link, right on - Thanks! Especially the 32bit vs 64bit scenario at the end.
... but with the exception of oblivion and bioshock (WTF is sega revo), all those games use roughly 300MB of memory even at minimum resolutions and AA, Crysis and Stalker(400mb vram @ 800x600) bein the worst...
I wouldnt buy this even at $150, bc i would like to be able to RUN stalker and crysis without data swapping(even at 800x600
look at the graph!)... I'm not saying the performance will be horrid; I'm saying that its a crap product because it has such a miniscule target market... and it comes at a time when there are no 8800GT's with 512MB to be found... and at a time when all future games are almost guaranteed to need more than 256.
Maybe they'll plaster a sticker of jonathan wendel's face on it to make it sell. But as of right now I couldn't imagine many people buying this card.
