64 should be enough for years to come...

and the LE doesn't guarantee retail speeds, although it's likely to make it to 275 with some extra voltage/flashed bios...

The standard 8500 is cheap now, I'd just get that...

Again, it's the roll of the dice, you could get a good card handicapt and sold lower (which can be flashed with a new bios and instantly run like a retail) or get stiffed and never be able to go higher. Really, either way, you in cause it's a good card for the money.

it's a tough call, but you may hit other limits in the LE that will hinder performance. remeber how the 32MB mx didn't perform too much slower than the 64MB mx?
