Hey all, I am new to these forums so bear with me!
I am in the process of building a pc for the first time and I am confused between these 2 gpus and why they are different prices, although not a big price change i would like to know which one is the best bang for the buck.
EVGA 012-P3-1571-KR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
A. The cheaper card has a non-standard cooler. It probably cools better and is quieter but only half the air goes out of the case; the rest is exhausted into the case. It might heat up other components if your case cooling is not adequate.
B. The cheaper card is 1.5" shorter.
C. The cheaper card has a full-size HDMI instead of the more expensive card's mini-HDMI.
D. The cheaper card has a DisplayPort connector.
