    unless you run at high resolutions with FSAA enabled, 256 is enough.

    If you aren't willing to go for a more expensive card, some of the best 7-series cards might be cheaper and perform better than the 8600.

    I'm not really too knowledgeable about the lower-end 8 series except that I've heard terrible things.

    Wait for the 8800 GT 256 MB, perhaps?

    Edit: ATI cards are really the best once you start getting really cheap.

    Forget about having lots of video RAM. Even with textures set to highest you will still have plenty to spare from 256MB. More RAM would be useful for very high resolutions with high antialiasing, but that's not practical with an 8600, so it's a waste.

    calling all video card experts

    Hey everyone.

    I'm getting an 8600GT from Newegg and there's a ton of different ones to choose from. The clock speeds range from 540mhz to 720mhz. Here's the dilemma: All of the 512MB cards have a clock speed under 600mhz, all the ones with a higher clock speed are 256MB. So what's your opinion? Is it better to go with lower clock speed and more memory or faster clock speed and less memory? I don't want to overclock it so I don't consider getting a 512MB card and overclocking it an option.

    p.s. please don't recommend a more expensive card unless you want to send the money for it , it's not within the budget.
