How does this card compare to an 8800GS 384mb? As you could grab one of those for $55 shipped from DC (at least yesterday you could).

For gaming - the 384MB one would be great at 1280x800 and below. But at 1440x900 or 1680x1050, the 768MB version should offer a significant improvement. I would imagine, though, that either card would struggle at 1920x1200.

For folding - basically no difference at all, maybe +5% max for the 768MB version. VRAM plays a very minor role with the nv core.

Is not 768MB DDR2, pretty much the same speed as 384MB DDR3? Maybe this is a dumb question.
