Default Radeon 7000, 7200

I always wondered about this but lets say I have a Radeon 7000 that is 64mb and a Radeon 7200 that is 32mb. Which card will be overall better for games like UT 2004, The Sims 2, Quake 3 Arena etc basicly older games? I would assume the Radeon 7000 that is 64mb is better since usualy more MB means better.

We have told you this like 9000 times, more VRAM does not necessarily mean better.

I don't remember asking you guys about the Radeon 7000 and 7200 and compairing those cards video ram. But eather way so you are saying that the 7200 is overall better then even if it has less video ram? Doesn't more ram make it so the performance on games run better though?

The 7200 is better, let's just leave it at that.

Both cards are crap by today's standards though. They were low end even when they came out.

I remember long time agao that when I had a GeForce FX 5200 that is 256mb and that card ran better than the GeForce FX 5600 128mb. I use to have a computer that had an AGP slot and it was alot better machine but I sold it since I needed money. This was like 4 years agao.

Actualy the 7200 was a mid range card and the 7000 was entry level card and the 7500 was high end back that time. I did see it say that online

For the 7500 there was a 128mb video ram.

Entry-level cards 7000/VE, SDR, LE
Mid-range cards 32 DDR, 7200

Stop asking these pointless questions. Both cards suck. End of story. If you want to know which is better, look up benchmarks, plain and simple.

Well if the 7200 is better out of the two then I have that one right now so that's good.
