Re: what is the difference between a 512mb video card and a 256mb video card?

Jan 19, 2007
Nvidia is a good brand, i have the GeForce 4000 MX model...made a huge difference even though that model is older...just so that my computer doesnt use the ram for video anymore (Hence why i say 512 is better then 256...since an added video card uses 0 of your pc's ram resources, where the stock video card thats installed use up more of your ram and pc resources)

Ram in your computer is not the same as the video ram inside of your graphics card.  Don't get them confused.

What is your goal in getting a video card?  It really depends on what you want to get it for.

Oic.  Well I would personally get one of the best ones instead of buying a cheaper not so good one.  However if you get a good price for a 6600 then go ahead and get one.
