Cards with different memory size are tricky to compare. Either your games can fit even the one with less RAM -> no performance difference. Or the other possibility - one card running fine and the other one slideshow.

I have some cards to try it with, so maybe one day. :)

Throw enough graphics mods at game, and VRAM get's scarce REALLY fast :)
How many FPS 8800 GTX get's in Crysis in "High" preset with Full HD resolution.
Enabling AA on R600s should drop performance pretty hard (since AA is done via shader cores).

It will bottleneck slightly.

I did my own mini testing on a phenom x4 9950 the other day. Ran a few games and 3d mark. I tested dual 7900gtx, dual and single 8800gt, dual and single 9800gtx+, and dual and single GTX 280. What I discovered is the gtx280/dual 8800gt/dual 9800 GTX+ at 1680x1050 where 17% faster than a single 9800gtx+. But the 9800gtx was a solid 72% faster than dual 7900gtx.

What this tells me is the phenom 1st Gen sucked, but it also ties a q6600 at stock so I'd imagine an SLI gtx260 would be wasted on anything slower than a 1st Gen i7.

That's an interesting conclusion. There are a large selection of Core 2 Quads that are significantly faster than the Q6600.

maybe but the affordable ones are Kentsfield and q8xxx series, the q9xxx series tend to be way over priced

I need to check all your work on better time, I'm pretty active on the nostalgic hardware thread and I love benchmarking old cards too. Subbed this thread too.
