The 710 is faster clock for clock and will overclock higher than the 8750 all while consuming less power, as everyone has said go with the 710. Helloworld_98 April 29, 2009 4:33:18 PM it might not OC better actually because on amd's cpu's their HT base can't go much further, so maybe a 14x7mhz OC max since that's as high as most people get. ibreakstuff April 30, 2009 1:55:40 AM I just picked up a 720. It's absolutely worth a few extra bucks. If you can't afford it go with the 710, it has the 45nm architecture. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
