Don't think video games. And by the way, bus width means nothing if the card is going to be used for CUDA/Physx related programs.

If your running Vista 32bit, your Ram's bus is 128bit, that handles 2GB's of ram just fine.

It's all about parallel computing. If thats what they're planning on doing with it. Turning your videocard into not just a GPU, but a CPU as well.

I have no idea if this is the plan, but it's the logical step if thats the direction they're taking. They don't have a choice in the matter really.

I think they call these kind of cards "noob bait".

Ok, I'm done trying to explain the possible reasons/benfits for having that much ram on a 9xxx series videocard. It seems no one else but me sees Nvidia's possible/likely future going forward. It also seems like I am the only one to read their press releases per future plans and roadmaps. Ignorance is bliss, so they say.

I won't interfere with the next 40-50 spam posts with the word gimmick in it.

But for progresses sake, I hope you are wrong.
Parallel computing with a GPU will be fantastic once perfected.

How pointless, that 256bit bus cant use more then 512mb of ram

Ok I said I wasn't going to post anymore but this is ridiculous...

Xbox 360 has 512MB of video ram yet, has a 128bit bus.

The computer you are on now, the rambus is 128bit bus, and that can handle a tad over 3GB's of ram (if your running vista 32 or xp).

People are still confusing AGP's drawbacks with current tech.

PCI-e connects directly to your Northbridge. Bus width isn't the bottle neck it used to be.

I wonder how many people still believe this junk....

Sorry, I wasn't answering your question, I was telling the previous poster that he was "misinformed, or misunderstood" regarding bus width.

I cannot explain it any simpler really, just do some research on PC terminology and then it may make some sense for ya.

I know the terminology, but you don't seem to be saying anything except 2gb can be used with by a 256bit bus in different ways...
What a cop out

You know, this might not be that bad an idea...it will definitely fit the niche in the market for those who have a multi-30+"-monitor setup, but don't want to spend the extra few dollars on the 3870X2 or can't wait 2 weeks for the 9800 series w/e
