It has got GDDR3 memory mate :)  all of 88xx series have got GDDR3 memory

GDDR3 is for GPU
DDR3 is for RAM

If you bothered to read the specs then you would have seen that it is indeed DDR3, but if you want to have a gimmick card from an unreachable ebayer then you go right ahead.

See ya, wouldn't want to be ya!

completely wrong
The 1GB verison may not be faster than the 512MB version in almost every game but it isnt slower either

i never said drastically, but the reason its .1 fps slower is because of access times and the fact that it has to more to worry about..dont come in here saying "completely wrong" when i was right.

Thanks guys, but it would appear that jaymc is just a waste of genetic material messing about on mummy's keyboard.

I read a couple of reviews where the 1gig card blows the competition away. One of the games had something to do with PT Boats, Nights of the Pacific...or something similar. Amazing how much more performance was gained. Can't understand why it lacks in others though.

"1GB More Future Proof?: In all the games we tested today, the 1GB frame buffer offered by the Palit GeForce 8800 GT Super+1GB offered little or no performance improvement over the stock GeForce 8800 GT 512MB. Even in our 2560x1600 tests, the additional memory offered no advantage in some games."

I was wondering why would anybody want to spend so much and get so little in return. When I converted the price of that first card off of ebay it was like $357 USD, jesus...You should really make some friends in the US and buy a 8800gt from the states, but then again I'm not 100% sure what customs would charge or exactly how it works, yada yada yada. But damn ppl should be taking advantage of the US currency being so weak right now...b/c in the U.S. you could easily obtain a good 8800gt for like $240ish? Have a friend ship it out maybe another $20 or so still worth it.

But thats just me. :whistle:
