If I was to get a new graphics card, i have spotted a Geforce FX 5600 that is 128mb and 256mb. The 256mb one is £20 more expensive, but wil the memory be slower than the 128 card? The shop assistant (this is a professional computer store) insisted the memory and performance will be quicker. However i have heard cases that SOME 256mb GF 5600's are slower, but some have 400mhz memory clock x 2. Any suggestions ppl? I cant remember the brand name of the card, but i would recognise the box a mile away... i have placed a deposit on this card, but don't know the memory clock speed.. i persume it is quicker, any advice?
Does anyone actually have a 256mb GF FX 5600?
I have noticed the ABit card has been reviewed here is outperformed by its sibling, but do different card manufacturers use different amounts of memory? Should i get the 256mb or 128mb card? As i said. £20 difference makes me think the 256mb card is better.
I need a speedy reply ppl as i have a deposit on the 256 card, which can either be taken or removed by tomorrow.
