A: it is still cheaper than both the radeon and the gf3ti500
No, you can probably find the retail Radeon 8500 for the same price if you look hard enough.
B: it cant hurt
C: there will be some performance gain I assure you.
Sure, you're looking at a 1-2% gain.
D: it will be much more future proof
By the time games need all the 128MB, the GF3Ti200 won't be able ot handle them even at Ti500 speeds. I doubt games will use 128MB textures in at least 2 or 3 years.
