bandwidth is not as important as having a good GPU for 3D gaming, the KI780G has
been shown to handle hardcore 3D games as long as it is used with an adequate
Another nice feature on this board is “128MB side-port DDR2” memory dedicated
for use with the VGA card, increasing 3D performance by 10% and eliminating the
need for the graphics system to borrow shared system memory.
