Hi All,

I have compared two versions of the GTX 760 and want to know it it's worth the extra money...

Both versions are EVGA and overclocked with the ACX cooler...

After using the compare button on EVGA's website, the only difference I can see between the 4GB and the 2GB versions is;

Obviously an extra 2GB of RAM
Extra 12Mhz of "GPU Speed"
Extra feature called "EVGA Double BIOS"

So, the main question is, is the 4GB versions worth the extra £40?

Would the extra 2GB make any difference?
Would I notice anything different between the 2?

Only if you are going to buy another for sli later down the track.

Edit: Also if you want to max games on resolutions above 1080p. (The SLI option again)

I wont be using SLI as my motherboard won't support it, will it make a difference if I only had one card?

The 4GB 760 is pointless unless you SLI due to it's limitation of not being able to fully utilize the 4GB VRAM with it's narrow bandwidth. You want to get a 2GB GTX 760 http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/ref=as_li_qf_sp_sr_il_t... if you don't plan to SLI and if you use a 1080p or less resolution monitor.
