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.

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.
