24" Monitor - 2x8800GT 1gb or 2x8800gts 512mb? Tags: Graphics Cards Performance Monitors Graphics Last response: May 2, 2008 3:23 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Noya May 2, 2008 4:50:19 AM The title says it all. Will the 1gb memory give better performance at 24" resolution or do the higher SP's of the 8800gts still beat it? Also, am I right that SLi uses VRAM of only a SINGLE card? I haven't conducted a search yet, just wondering if it's an easy answer? OR is there a new 9800 on the way (quickly) that I should wait for?

Yes, SLI will only use the total VRAM of a single card. Well, that's all you can see, but it'll use it all. I'm off to bed, but I'm sure someone a little less worn out will be along shortly to explain it better. Avenger_K May 2, 2008 5:02:41 AM Just saw your edit. The 9900s may be out by June or July, and they look to be beasts if you can wait that long.
