I feel that this review , while good as usual, doesn't do justice to what the 3 GB has potential for; 3D Surround
EVGA refused to send us another card...even a loaner.
HOWEVER, you'll run smack into a rendering bottleneck long before the memory gets saturated. Sure, 3GB MAY give you double the framerates in 3D Vision Surround. BUT, if the stock card is running at 15 FPS with dips down to 3 and the 3GB card is running 30 average with dips down to 6-8, what's the use? The game would still be unplayable, and that's assuming a doubling of framerates.
