Re: 896 megs, 1 Gigabyte, 2 gigabyte? Something some might find interesting.
I haven't found the 896 ram on my 260s limiting @ 1920x1200. Then again I don't run massive amounts of AA. Would two 285s be faster than my overclocked 216s? Sure, and right now I don't feel it merits the investment.
Personally, I'd rather something like 1GB of fast vram vs 2Gb of slower ram. Often cards with a lot of ram have reduced clocks.
There probably will be more games in the future where higher amounts of vram are meaningful and by that time most of us will likely have new cards.
