You did your research and you've discovered that the 8800GT continues to be one of the best value for money cards when it comes to good mid-range performance. The thing is, you wouldn't mind kicking it up a notch in the memory department if you had the choice.
Well, we might have found the card for you here today. ASUS has recently released an 8800GT that is packing 1GB of GDDR3 memory. However, it's not uncommon for a bump in memory to do nothing more than make you feel a bit better about your system.
Really, there's only one way to find out if the extra memory does anything for your gaming experience, and that is to run it through a multitude of tests. That's exactly what we've done here today, but before we get into it let's see what ASUS has done with the package and card.
