128MB vs. 256MB Grapics Card
I am looking at a DELL XPS 1530 preloaded with Ubuntu. I am going with the Intel Core 2 Duo T8100 processor ( This is 64 bit according to Intel website: Intel® Core™2 Duo processor numbers).
How much overkill is going with a 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600M GT vs128MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8400M GS?
I plan on using Compiz Fusion with OpenSuse 11.0, KDE 4.1.2. Is the 256 card worth the extra $100? According to Compiz website (Hardware/NVIDIA - Compiz Fusion Wiki), 64MB is minimum memory required. I do not plan to do gaming or video editing. I just want to utilize Compiz Fusion 3D desktop effects.
