Anyone know how much video memory the various Texture Quality settings require?

I've been running on 'very high' with a Radeon 9800 Pro (128MB), though I suspect maybe I need 256MB?

256mb RAM is the minimum, 512 is reccomendend.
All though 1 gig of RAM would be allot better..

He's talking about video card memory not system memory. 128MB should be ok.

he's talking about videocard ram mate, so dont even talk about 512 and 1 gb, cause that doesn't exist yet.

I would think 256 MB RAM, just like in Call of Duty...

128 is fine,
but 256 for hard core games is great!

I've got the same radeon as you and I haven't had any trouble running the game with full textures. Perhaps a new Catalyst?

Actually I would say 512 MB of System ram is about minimum for todays game, for optimum performance I would recommend 1 gig. the more ram the better

128 should be fine, no games really NEED that much yet. A few FPS is all you'll really get if you get the a 9800 pro 256 over 128.
