The 460 & 560 look like cheap junk...
Gotta love that 580 though!

Bah who cares how it looks when its in the case. I want to know if the extra RAM puts it right back into 6950 Territory.

you can add as much ram as you like but if the core is not up to snuff with the extra bags...:)

VGA/D-SUB..... seriously?!?!? What year is this?

After Palit's history in North America, they have a long way to go in my eyes before I would EVER recommend one of their cards. The same thing goes for their Galaxy brand as well.

Did more ram usually do a lot of difference? maybe the card is like 5-7% faster max. But 15% more expensive XD

At higher Res , if the cards bus doesn't get saturated yes. For F@H yes (Ran tests with side by side GT240s and the one with 1GB vs 512 got 15-20% more PPD).

512 VS 1GB for sure but does these application will take benefit of 3GB of memory? Like system memory to a certain point it's getting useless. But well, we could argue on this for ever just wait a review and see how thing goes ;)

Trust me MM, if I had the coin I'd get a 580 from them and 1 from eVGA and see which one folded better.

We'll wait for the reviews.
