I can't decide. I will be gaming on a 22 inch monitor (1680x1050) but I do have two screens.

Can you guys fight out the advantage and the disadvantage of buying 1GB vs 768MB??

Is that extra memory worth 20-30 more dollars?

I am downgrading from a 4890, but paying more for 260. It is too noisy for me.

I'm really looking forward for someone to see if you can flash a 768 to a 1GB to see if you can unlock the ROP's

I'm waiting for someone to solder memory to the PCB then flash it, if that's what you mean.

I don't know if this is just me, but I have a pet peeve. When people ask for video card recommendations, and they say they are gaming on a 22" or 24" screen or whatever. Ok. How does that help at all? You could be running 800x600 and performance would be the same across all screens. I wish people would just say what resolution they are using instead...

That being said both cards are great for the price.

Any you can't unlock a bigger memory bus or more ROPs on the 768mb card. The memory bus and ROPs are directly tied to the number of memory chips, which are physically missing on the 768mb card.
