    Hey guys I am led to believe I will recieve a 7300 GT with 256 of DDR3 memory, yes the DDR3 version tomorrow!

    At the price I couldn't resist the temptation to buy one up to have a mess around with! If this does indeed turn out to be the DDR3 version then I will purchase a second one to try out the SLi too! Its just something I want to do in the meantime until Direct x 10 cards come out and it wil be fun!
    Thats why my x1800xt 512 is now on the members market :( just thinking sell now to avoid bargain basement prices for the card as soon as new ones hit!

    Anyways I want to know if anyone will be interested in a full test of the card and also it's performance and overclockability?

    do post the results. i make new systems from scratch for clients and sometimes they like to play the odd game now and then, would like to see how such a cheapo card actually does in games.

    Any pics pogo?

    jrodga, who is it made by? The only 256mb DDR3 I have found is £67 although I have found one inno3d card that has been listed as DDR3 for £53 but is actually ddr2.
