    I recently upgraded from an 8800GTS 320 to a 8800GT while I was waiting for my RMA'd motherboard to be shipped in. I got my motherboard back and it worked, but the 4th RAM slot is dead. I upgraded my drivers to the newest beta ones.... .09 I think. I ran 3dMark05 and my score dropped from a previous 14000 with the GTS to 13500 with the GT. Do you think this could be because of only have 1.5GB's of memory instead of the previous 2GB that was used to test with the 8800GTS? Does memory play that big of a role? I ordered another 1GB stick from newegg and it should be here by Wednesday. What do you guys think?
