I wouldn't say useless, because I noticed a slight framerate advantage almost always, a very slight one, but it's there. So slight one could say inside the test error but it was consistent.
I'd also note that only 6 months ago or so 512 ram was plenty, but now I've seen 896 choke on a GTX260 running out of space, so newer games coming in the next year might need more than 1 gig ram, and on higher rezzes and with aa af cranked...
Anyway the price han't hit here yet - I read Palit owns them and is doing a new USA rollout with special nv cards under several brands excluding the palit name in the USofA, at least I thought it was gainward and not galaxy.
Yes, the 2 gigs is gimmicky but somehow I think it will become useful shortly enough.
