Default GTX 460 and it's memory

So newegg is having a pretty cool sale on a GTX 460, its going for 80 bucks after rebate. Newegg.com - Galaxy 60XMH6HS3HMW GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) GC 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card But I wanna know if the 768MB is memory is gonna be a noticeable downfall to the 1GB version. If I'm gonna see a big difference, I don't want in. Also, this is cheap enough where I might just SLI two of them. What do you guys say, worth it?

Desktop: AMD Phenom II 840 X4 @ 3.7Ghz // Asus Sabertooth 990FX // CM HAF 932 // XFX HD 5770 // 8GB Corsair Vengeance @1600 + 8GB G.skill Sniper @ 1600mhz (C9) // Cooler Master 600W // Zalman CNPS9900 // Sidewinder x8

If your resolution isn't very high and you don't play with max settings (Antialiasing, Aniso filtering, etc) then no, the memory reduction is not a big deal.
