It's like saying your GPU has up to 3GB VRAM* *with systems that have 8GB RAM When in actual fact it has 256MB and steals a load from your RAM to

A card that has 1GB of RAM and a 256bit bus will only be able to address 512mb consistently fast... slayvus02-23-2010, 08:42 AMWhat resolution do you play at? Posted via Mobile Device BruinBeer, Aug 28, 2009 #8 BG-0 Joined: Dec 31, 1969 Messages: 6,922 Any other choices than the TT and Gigabyte ones? At the moment a card with 512Mb of ram and a 256Bit memory interface is the best to go for.
Jul 16, 2010 #5 drew081886 TS Rookie Topic Starter Posts: 26 I specifically avoided the 1GB card because it was more expensive but I guess I just got lucky. A gpu needs to address memory at a much faster rate than a cpu to be as effective, hence the term 'bottleneck'. 512mb Vs 1gb Graphics Card What matters, as you probably know, is the AMPs on the 12v rail(s).

I'm thinking I might eventually just temporarily pick up a DDR5 512MB version and compare them myself to solve my curiosity. http://internetpasswordpro.com/graphics-card/graphics-card-overheating-fix.html Neither is actually that good... No, create an account now. Vario says thanks.

Just wondering what would be better to get, the benefits of twice the memory on the video card or the additional speed of the DDR5 memory but only half the memory the 5570 is a lower end mainstream card. what cards are they?
Otherwise: Waste of money. Maybe they need to build a few seconds of buffer first? I have purchased it from FLIPKART... spivonious is offline Quote post #7 of 21 Old 06-30-2010, 10:14 AM renethx AVS Forum Club Gold Join Date: Jan 2006 Posts: 16,472 Mentioned: 20 Post(s) Tagged: 1
