The difference is though closer to 20% Score 0 jyjjy a c 376 U Graphics card September 29, 2010 2:55:36 AM rolli59 said:The difference is though closer to 20%For these specific cards at stock that is true but you should factor in overclocking as well. I doubt the GTX 260 would get all that much over the factory OC but the Hawk should be able to go up another 150mhz or so.
