Default Re: Nvidia 256MB Geforce 6200 or SPARKLE GeFORCE 6200 256MB?

If that's your budget, then you can get a 128 MB GeForce 6600. 256 MB on a card like the 6200 isn't going to do you any good as it doesn't have the fillrate or bandwidth to take advantage of that much memory. It's a common trap that many people fall into, more video RAM != a better/faster card. A 128 MB 6600 is going to be faster and more efficient and should allow play of modern titles at low to medium settings at 1024x768. That 6200 would pretty much limit you to 800x600 or less.
