I am going to buy 1 of these 2 cards, which one would all of you recommend?
http://www.newegg.co...TC-pr1c3grabb3r
and also
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130233

Which one do you think is better? They are basically the same price and same card, but one is 128 mb ram, other is 256 mb ram, but their clock speeds are different etc.

I haven't looked into computer hardware in a few years so if you can help me it would be greatly appreciated. I don't know how important the ram is versus other things.

If the links don't work, here is the specs from the site:
The obvious differences are the memory clock speed and the memory size. Which is more important? 128mb ram or 100mhz?

You have an APG right? Well in that case i think the 256Mb one, it can hold more memory and so doesn't have to go to the RAM for textures. 100MHz is quite a lot but it's all to do with latency and stuff. The higher the clock the faster data is transfered. But unless you're on the extreme buget i say put in a more money and get the 6600GT, that has been the value gfx card from the start of 2005 to the end. but a little increase over that and you get stuff like the X800GTO and 6800GS both of which pack a lot of grunt for the price they ask, especially the X800GTO. you can get AGP ones for a few dollars more. I wouldn't recommend anything below the 6600 which is getting old now. But i suggest waiting and doing one big upgrade because when Windows Vista comes, i doubt you're specs will meet so just wait until then before you get it or you're gfx card will be wasted
