Default ASUS Goes for the Gigabyte

SUS announced the EN8800GT/HTDP/1G, an Nvidia GeForce 8800-based graphics card with a full 1GB of onboard memory. The DirectX 10 friendly card also includes what ASUS calls SmartDoctor, a method of overclocking not only the core and memory clocks, but the shader clock as well.

But theres only so much ram you can shove onto a device before it becomes useless to put more ram on. It just isn't all about ram anyway. Sorry if im being pessimistic, although 1GB of ram does seem interesting.
