    I think what Sven256 is trying to say, is that, if you are taliking about the 32mb 64-bit DDR Geforce and the 16mb 128-bit Geforce MX, the 16mb 128-bit Geforce MX is the faster.

    I might be wrong about this, but in general your 128-bit memory is faster than your 64-bit by quite a margin. But in your case, you're trying to choose between less but faster memory and more but slower memory, hence 64-bit 32mb and 128-bit 16mb.

    It realy depends on what you use it for, if you're into gaming as well as on a budget than go for the 64bit 32mb, because you need the extra ram to do the 3D processing. However if you occassionally play games and mostly into imaging or AutoCAD, or anything but gaming than go for the 128bit 16mb, firstly because you don't need the extra ram, secondly it process image alot faster.

    However if you have pocketful of money to spend then go for the GeForce2 32mb DDR (Double Data Rate) or even atleast GeForce2 MX 32mb (SDram).

    Good luck.

    What kind of card you talking about???

    128bit 16MB fester at low resolution.
    64bit 32MB fester at high resolution.

    If the card has a normal 3D GPU(Rage128, TNT, Savage4, voodoo3, and so on) then your always going to play games at low resolution
    so 16MB 128bit would be a little faster untill large textures kick in.
