Choice between these two cards
Jan 27, 2010, 7:43 PM
Hello. I am building my third PC and wanted some advice on which of these graphics cards I should get. They are both 260 gtx, just made by different manufacturers.

I'd actually go for this one
Cheaper, less heat output, uses less power, DX11, about the same performance as a GTX260/HD4870
But if your really must have a GTX260 then I'd go with the Gigabyte one, as its cheaper than the palit and I've never had a palit card before.

Heat shouldnt be an issue as I am using this case
I selected the gtx260 over the 5770 because the it was superior in all the bench tests I saw.

Agree with omg, 5770 is cheaper, less heat, use less power, dx11, and on par with gtx260/4870...
If u still insist, then choose any cheaper gtx260 card, in this case Gigabyte.
It's up to u.
