Yeah, I was wondering about this too. I know the amount of RAM is important, but i cant figure out the difference between a 500 dollar 256 mb card and a 80 dollar one.

for $300 you could probably find a 6800GT or an ATI X700 (it'd be worth your money to just splurge a little more and get an X800XT probably about $350-$380)

The difference would be:
GPU clock speed
Memory Bandwidth (also referred to as pipelines)
Memory Clock
Other features like DPI (dots per inch), higher resolutions, and antialiasing.

Not to mention if you bought an $80 256 card you would never be able to use more than about half that because the clock speed of the card wouldn't be able to handle that much information.
