I found 2 Geforce 460 Video cards from Palit and couldn't decide which would be better.

GTX 460 1GB overclocked core to 800 MHz and 1600 MHz shader

vs

GTX 460 1GB running core at 700 MHz and 1400 MHz shader

Would appreciate some opinions on which card would better and for what applications. Thanks.

You can overclock them yourself, so it really doesn't matter.

OOPS, typo: should read

GTX 460 2GB running core at 700 MHz and 1400 MHz shader

Get the GTX460 1GB and OC it. The GTX460 won't make full use of 2GB VRAM.

2GB of VRAM is useless unless you're running a VERY high resolution.

Even at 1080 (1920x1080) the 2GB is fairly useless.

No!!! Do not buy the regular "Sonic" Edition gtx 460 from palit. It has a terrible terrible cooler. If you are going to get a Palit gtx 460 get the sonic platinum edition. It has heat pipes and a better cooler, the sonic one is just a hunk of aluminum, and the gtx 460 2gb has the exact same cooling solution. Grab the sonic platinum or go for a different brand! I learned the hard way with my Sonic edition (returned it).

if you're running three 22" monitors at 1080p, which would be better?
