Hi! 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 ( ) 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 400 MHz RAMDAC 1024 MB, 256 bit GDDR5 3800 MHz (effective) 121.6 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!

More aboutwhich delivers performance
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.
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.
