But that means game developers need to act on that and unless they can create games that will allow this gfx card to render them amazingly, its not going to happen.

No game actually needs it or will use it. There are actuially a ton of games that barely use 256. Like I said though these cards will prolly come more into play in the future.

They will, games like halo 2 on the pc and half life 3 will be designed with these new cards in mind, however I beleive this will mean alot of people with fairly crappy cards like me will be left in the dark!!

True but I dont think the current games will be able to utilize and combine bothe groups of memory to allow for such large textures!!
