Which delivers the most performance??

Hi! :hello:
I am planning on buying an NVidia VGA from the 400 series. I had my mind set on the EVGA GeForce GTX 465 SuperClocked, but I noticed that the EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked 1024MB EE (External Exhaust) is also available for the same price ( :ouch: ) on the EVGA web site.....

What card should I pick??? Can anyone please advise...... The Specs of Each card are listed below, along with the PC Specs

EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked 1024MB EE (External Exhaust)
763 MHz GPU
336 CUDA Cores
1024 MB, 256 bit GDDR5
3800 MHz (effective)
121.6 GB/s Memory Bandwidth

EVGA GeForce GTX 465 SuperClocked
625 MHz GPU
352 CUDA Cores
1024 MB, 256 bit GDDR5
3240 MHz (effective)
103.6 GB/s Memory Bandwidth

System Is As Follows
Core i5 750
4GB DDR3 (1333)
Intel Desktop Board DP55WB
Samsung 18.5' Monitor

Does the difference of 12 CUDA cores Effect overall performance??
Any Advice Would be deeply appreciated..... Thanks in Advance! :)

  1. For your 18.5" monitor, i doubt you need Superclocked card, you will be fine with regular GTX460.
    no need to spend more money for OC card, you can OC it by yourself. :)
  2. Best answer
    I would go for the gtx 460, I did. I paid more. There was a great deal with 2 games for the 465 but I decided for the 460. To get more performance out of either model, you need to overclock. The 465 has a million extra transistors, its a bigger gpu, so it uses more power and puts out more heat. That can be a acceptable trade off if there is enough performance to balance the negatives. The 460 gives a better balance.
