    The ammount of memory does not make a graphics card good or not. I would voice my opinion in of the card, but that is not the model number.

    You have to be more specific. You didn't mention what the GPU was. It's important to note that video cards have seperate Vendors and families. The vendor (Sapphire in this case) is actually usually the last thing you should look at. The GPU is the first.

    For example, I have a MSI HD 4890 (called the 'R4890') 1gb GDDR5. (Oh, and it came with a nice cooler stock

    But yes, be more specific.

    Memory means nothing.
