the 256mb 6800 means it has more ram for the GPU's resources therefore making it run better than being limited to 128mb. thats all i really know

Yeah, 256mb allows it to run smoother.

well i want to get a new graphics card but im unsure if i should spend like 200-300 on the 6800GT one or like 100-200 on the 128mb one...both have the same mhz and so on...i want to upgrade my current Nvidia Geforce 440mx card,...the games i want to play are like doom 3,halflife 2, rome total war and other latest pc games.

rome total war looks sweet even though im not into those kinda games. get the 256mb one and you should have no problem playing doom 3 on high settings, although the power supply needs are like 350-400watts just for the card
