Hi all,

I was trying to find the difference in performance between the two cards:

GeForce GTX 560 SE (Fermi) 1GB 192-bit CUDA Cores: 288
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit CUDA Cores: 336
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


I was trying to find benchmarks showing the performance difference between the two, but I couldn't find any. If you have a link showing difference in performance between the 192-bit version vs the 265-bit please post it.

Are the $40 difference between the two card really worth the price?

Also, another question. Can the two 560 listed above be combined together as SLI?

I need to mention that the graphic card would be used for games such as WoW and SC2.

I currenly have a Q6600, 680i mobo, 4GB RAM, 8800GTX, a 22' monitor 1920x1080.

No, different core counts.

Thanks all for your input. I was trying to understand the gain in performance between the 196-bit and the 256-bit. I know it could vary depending upon my system, but just to have an idea. Any percentage gain (e.g. are we talking about 5%, 10%, or more?) ? or a benchmark? or something that can show the difference in performance between the two cards.
