Hi,

I'm literally going to be buying everything for my new build tonight but just realized a price jump in the card I was planning on getting. I found "another" card that is almost $40 less but I can't seem to find any difference between them. Could someone figure this out? The first link is the original card that I was planning on using. The 3rd link is to my proposed build. Any suggestions or recommended changes?

The cheaper one has an extra DVI port and uses a 6 & an 8 pin power connector instead of 2 x 6pin.

Do the differences create any practical difference?

I'm sure one of those heatsinks is better than the other, but I have no clue which - nor will I scour the internet to try and figure it out... I'll leave that to you ;)

Performance is the same for both models.

If you need another DVI (Single Link) connection on the graphics card then the cheaper FX-795A-TDJC model should be your choice.

Both cards use two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors since they both use the same factory clocks and consume the same amount of power.

It also looks like the cheaper FX-795A-TDJC is a replacement for the problem plagued, older, more expensive FX-795A-TDFC model.
