    Hey, i'm planning on buying a MBP in the not too distant future and plan to do some Gaming on it BF2 etc. (now that there's Boot Camp) and i am wondering if there's a big difference between 128mb VRAM vs. 256mb they are both the X1600 card so am i going to see a huge difference? i plan on getting 1.5-2GB of RAM so what do you think? worth it for the extra VRAM?

    If you plan on doing any games...more video ram doesn't hurt.

    I wouldn't say it would make a big difference, but get it anyway then you will never know or feel bad for not getting it :)

    I think the 128MB card is powerful, but of course double the memory will be faster. It's just a matter of it you need it and if you can afford it. If you can afford it, it doesn't ever hurt.

    Go for it, the graphics card isn't upgradeable so I'd do it just for future's sake.
