6gb of ram? wtf

if you already bought it, ok but id also change the power supply to a xfx 550w since ocz or whoever makes 700w units arent great

the difference is that one is overclocked from the factory. overclocking can be done in 5 mins at home. i dont see the point springing for the oc version

What he means is that we don't know what brand the 700 W PSU is. It could be a bad one and if that's true I'd say you definitely want to get a new one. So what is the brand of the PSU? A newegg link would be great.

Secondly what resolution are you playing at? I would say if you only have one monitor at 1080 the OC 1 GB version should be enough but if you ever want to add more screens and a second card then you'll want the 2 GB version.

i generally suggest getting either 2,4, or 8gb of ram. i generally never mess with different ram sticks of different capacities. its still fine for the most part

a lot of 700w psus arent great.

You generally want matching sticks of ram for best performance and stability. Its not that big of a problem.

Regarding the original post. The OC gpu is faster slightly if you run at factory settings. If they both have the same cooler then they will be pretty much the same. You can OC both of them to about the same performance.
