    hm , men i wonder something about video graphics card i mean my geforce 6800 xt specifications.

    i ask this : the card i carry on my computer is 256-bit but 128 MB
    but some cards , assume geforce 7 series have opposite meanwhile 128-bit 256 MB or higher


    which of these provide better performance and why? (make a decision by considering bits and capacity
    not the series)

    main thing i wish for ask is that bits or memory capacity is more effective ?

    Are you asking what the numbers mean?

    256 is how much Ram it has and the other number is the bandwith

    Mine is an 8600gt here are the specs WITH AN EXPLANATION OF WHAT THE NUMBERS MEAN

    Chipset

    nVidia Geforce 8600GT

    Video Memory Installed


    256MB DDR3 THIS IS HOW MUCH RAM IS ON THE CARD

    Core Clock Speed


    540MHz THIS IS THE CLOCK SPEED OF THE CHIPSET

    Shader Clock Speed


    1200MHz THIS IS THE SPEED OF WHICH THE CARD CAN DO THE SHADER MODELLING

    Memory Clock Speed


    1400MHz THIS IS THE SPEED OF THE MEMORY

    Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec)


    24GB/s THIS IS HOW FAST THE BANDWIDTH IS

    Texture Fill Rate (Billion Texels/sec)


    8.6G Texels/sec THIS IS HOW FAST PIXEL ARE DRAWN

    Stream Processors


    32

    forgive me but i wasn't intended to ask what they are!

    i asked memory bus or memory capacity(amount) is much effective about game performance
    and why? (think the example i have given)

    These are really only important for games. For practicaly anything else they don't matter nearly so much.

    The more memory on a graphics card you have the more it can load and keep parts of the game image - which means it is quicker to draw them as it doesn't have to fetch the part from disk.

    The wider the bus-width the faster is the drawing speed.

    So plenty of both is good.

    Each game has a 'preferred' card that it seems to work best with. Check on the forums for each game to discover what that is.
