Other than that the 840 non pro is fine. SlitWeaver April 18, 2013 9:03:17 PM Kjwinden said:The only way you will tell the difference is by running benchmarking software.

Mustangs can be bought for around 15g's and are staples of white trash idiots who can't afford any better but HAVE to have a "sports car." Porsches near to the pinnacle of the combination of sportiness, speed and luxury. Comparing a Porsche and a mustang is more like comparing an 840 pro to the slowest 500gb HDD currently on the market.
