Default 512 Mb Cards Up And Running!!

Yes thats right, u heard it , the 512 mb cards are finally out, and avialable to the public! Im not too sure how long they have been out for, i went onto newegg and saw these 512 mb cards. i was like huh? this cant be right. But i saw it and its true! The only makes are BFG and XFX, and the card is the 6800 Ultra. PCI E 16 x slot only, no agp at the moment. Sry ATI fans, i guess ull just have to wait! Anyway , just wanted to say that, and i would DIE to see what kind of gaming preformance these things give with hl2 and d3. pce out, going to play wowzor :P

Um...so? I don't really think 512M would make much of a difference for a while untill GFX cards are a bit more poewrful. It's like giving an old geforce(one) 256M RAM. It sounds amazing, but it can't use but like 32M because of the limited hardware.

THat too, but I still don't beleive they'll be much improvement untill GPU's are better made for it.
