will a 128 MB DDR3 video card outperform a 256 MD DDR video card?

It depends on more than that...

Clockspeeds, pipelines, etc. DDR3 just runs cooler I believe...

no.... 256mb better by far.. expecially with all the texture memory todays games need.

You can have your 512meg fx5200 while i'll stick with the 128meg 6600gt.
Listen to what jAkUp is saying.

If the card has a 256bit memory bus, a 256 meg card will be better.

If the card has a 128bit memory bus, a 128 meg card will be better, because 256 meg of ram is really a waste of money on a card with a 128bit memory bus.

So it does depend on the card.

What card are you thinking about?

It depends on clokspeed, memory speed (DDR vs DDR3), if the card has OMFG! Megs of ram but it runs at 10Mhz but the other has 128Megs at 500Mhz, the 128Mgs card will outperform the other because of the bandwitdh

It just depends if the card has slow 256mb of memory against a faster 128 mb card ,like the plain 6600 with 256mb of memory ,the 128mb 6600GT is going to be the faster card.

OK
What if you can choose between a 128 MEG DDR3 card and a 256 MEG DDR3 CARD - both are the GT6600 Cards - which one would you get - and remember this card has 128 bit memory bus.
