Hi i have a pretty lame 256mb graphic card in my computer, so i would like to switch it. My motherboard is a MSI P35 NEO. I wanna buy a card with enough performance (atleast 1gig memory) but it cant be too expensive either. And i've ended up with 2 very priceworthy graphic cards. One is the
Gainward GeForce 9800GT 1GB PhysX CUDA, it's detalied information is (sorry for bad english):
So i'm wondering! Why this big price difference???
I'm not in to this so much but what i've discovered the 9400GT has 50MHz less Clock Speed, and only have the DDR2 SDRAM instead of the GDDR3 SDRAM that comes with the 9800GT. I know 9800GT is also a newer card then the 9800 but i wonder what is the big difference between GDDR3 SDRAM and DDR2 SDRAM?
I guess that's why the price is so different because i've seen many videocards that costs up to 200USD and still have 550MHz instead of 600MHz (Clockspeed)
Hope you understand what i mean, Clockspeed might not be the right term but in swedish it's Klock Hastighet, if that's helps some one. (stating the obvious)
Forgot to say, what resolution do you play at (assuming you want to play games), this can affect graphic card choice. Also, you might want to check the price on that 9800GT, you might be able to get a Radeon 4870 for similar money, which is better again.
