well i dont know much of radeon, but i do know about memory, the requirment of Doom3 is that you have atleast 128mb on a V.card, but like i posted before, in tech class my Teacher always told me if you ever see a minimum requirment on a program, just double that and you will run smothly, so stick with your 256, your better off.

My 2 cents

Yeah, RAM is where it's at. Although, I think the bare minimum requirement of D3 is 64mb, isn't it? Meh, I'll find out when I buy it. But yeah, you're probably better off with keeping your current one.

if you have 200 bucks just go for a 9800pro. Its a GREAT card and you will love it. You might even be ablee to get it for under 200 if you look good enough.

Dont get the 9200, its a Direct X 8 card IIRC. It is also not ery fast for gaming, a 9600se would beat it.

9600se is worse than a 9200 just so you know.
