I plan on buying a new video card in a week or two and I want to know is how big of a difference I will get between a 32 or 64 meg GTS card... Right now I have a lousy TNT so which ever I get the improvement will be enormous but is it worth the extra 30 bucks for the 32 more megs or ram?

From what I have read and charts I have seen the extra 32 MB isn't justifird on the GTS. There is like a 2-5% increase. Save 30 Bux and Enjoy

I'm so tired with comparisons... however, the Pro is about the same price and is a much better card... the 64 MB will help you achieve higher display sizes and maintain same performance levels, but for standard 800x600, the gts pro 32MB would be fine.

Dude majority of games dont even use all of the 32mb available to em so 64mb really just for 'show' at the moment.....

I swapped my GTS 32 for my buddies 64 and I couldn't tell one bit of difference. My unreal frame rate was the same even at 1280x1024x32 and my 3d mark 2000 score went up about 30 points. Memory speed is where it's at, not quantity of memory.
