256mb 6600 vs 128mb 6600gt

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've been researching alot, and the general consensus I have seen is that the 128 6600gt is better. But I want something that will be able to run new games for a while. It doesn't have to be at the highest settings but the requirements usually say "video card w/ 128 mb memory" not at least a certain model video card, but what do you guys think. btw I have an athlon xp 3000 1gig 3200 compaq pos. and I will be upgrading the power supply, as long as I can.

thanks in advance

Well the 6600GT is a much better card, due to higer clock speeds than the 6600. It will run higer resolutions than the 6600 also (ram on a card is really overrated, dont go about buying a card based on the amount of ram) For some reason, video games base the amount of ram on the video card for it's requirements.. usually saying any ATi 9xxx series or nvidia 6xxx series can play the game...
