Determine 64bit or 128bit memory

I've just purchase a "Gainward GeForce4 PowerPack! Pro/600-8X TV 64MB Low profile" video card.
The 3D mark scores are much lower then I expected.

My question is:
How can I tell if I have a 64bit or 128bit memory version? I know that the memory interface can really be a big performance factor and wanted 128bit.

On Gainwards website they list most cards memory type, i.e. '64MB of 128bit memory'. But in this case they just list the memory size but not the bit width :( 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Well after hours of searching I finally found my answer.
It is indeed 64bit >:( 

I used a tool called RivaTuner and under information it gives memory bus width.

So after pulling his hair and biting him a few times I talked him into spending an extra $40 (CDN) and getting a Sapphire Atlantis Radeon 9100 128MB w/ TV-Out, DVI

That should be good enough :)
