"To help answer this question for you we're going to compare the performance of the GeForce 8800 GT 256MB and 512MB with AA on and off so you can see exactly where the 256MB frame buffer begins to become a bottleneck."

Sony and its PS3 seems to think so! But the truth no 256vram is not enough reason why you have crappy graphics on the PS3...

Sorry bud, Drakes put everything else to shame. But I didn't click here to argue with that tool. It's true, I used to PC game quite a bit, but it is way to expensive to keep up. Last Card I bought was a 256mb ATI AGP card, for the cost of a card these days I can get a consele and a few games. Of course I'd get a PS3 so I'm not dealing with broken stuff all the time.(I don't mean that, it's just to jab back at the tool above me)

256mb is not acceptable for gaming, this is why games are inferior on the PS3

^^^lol thats funny.

360 with 512 and mass effect stutters more than kids who ride in the short bus. i guess you also missed the fact that ports are looking better on ps3 now with 256mb video ram.

What was that? wait........are you forgetting that ps1 and ps2 also had a slow first year, then wound up dominating in its second year due to sdk refinement?

how old is the ps3? 1.1 year the ps3 sales at 600 are phenomenal versus a 250 and 450 system.
get ready to be humiliated by everyone in this site starting in spring 2008.

go and play some gow, oh wait its better on pc. so just go rrod your xbox. you know its bound to happen anyway.

fact is 256mb is fine for gaming, if the buffer speed is high enough.
so 256mb gddr5>512mb gddr3.

hate all you want.

Wow. What a troll that Zhuk. It's a PC topic and he still can't stop talking about PS3. (and sounding like a huge idiot in the process as expected)
