Memory Bandwidth vs Stream Processors?

Okay ill get right down to my question, I'm looking at 2 different versions of the GTX 460 for almost the same price but from 2 different manufacturers..

One has Memory Interface:192-bit and Stream Processors:336 - Galaxy's model
the other has Memory Interface:256-bit and Stream Processors:288 - Evga's model

Currently my computer is:
AMD Phenom II x2 550 - 3.10ghz
XFX GeForce 8800 GTS Alpha Dog Edition
Asus M3N78 Pro Motherboard

Which card would you consider better then the other for a PC gamer?

I'm not too worried about the clock speeds because i can always OC them abit to make the difference

I doubt it would be needed but if a Everest report would help just ask. Thanks in advance :hello:

  1. I'd go with Evga's model, simply because I have long experience with their products/support and I've even bought two of those EVGA 460's and their working flawlessly in my buddies rig.

    As for the bandwidth and sp's; these differences will not have any noticable difference for a regular user, so the choice is free.

    The second one is a GTX 460 SE, which has been launched recently.There is not much difference between the two, but if you have a lower resolution monitor(< 1680x1050), get the GTX 460 768 MB.
