Default Graphics Cards specs?

I just switched my inno3d 7300 GT for the 7200 GT model because my computer apparently had some problems with the drivers on the 7300 which I spent hours trying to fix. Ironically, I put in the 7200, loaded up the drivers and it worked perfectly.

Anyway, my question is which actually has more power?

7300 - 256MB DDR2
7200 - 128MB DDR3

I'm not exactly amazing at computers, but at first glance I would of said the 7300, however, I don't know a lot about memory types (DDR2 and 3 and what not). Anyone care to shed some light?

The memory is not all that affects the "power" of a graphics card. You need to take into account the core clock, steam processors, memory clock, and memory interface. Then, if you want your image to look all nice and sharp, you need to consider DX support. I would assume they're both very similar in performance.

Most likely very similar, but with the 7300 gt coming out on top.
