What is the price difference? You probably won't see any real difference between the two. I would go with which ever is cheaper.

Price difference is about 50Dolars

take a 1gb as it would give advantage

I would go with the 1gb. I had a 460 1gb at that res and it could pull that much GPU memory in some games.

wow..almost twice price between 768 version and original 460..

go with 460 768mb then..
768mb version just around 10% slightly slower than 1024..

That extra 256mb of video memory will do nothing at that resolution. Its not worth the extra 50.

Is the Gpu going go max out new games at that resolution?

No. Certainly not.

A 560ti is a good choice for maxing at that res. It performs just above a 680 at 1080.

Really cuz i think it should max out a lot of games at this low resolution.Ok what do u sugges for this reso to max out everything?6850?

I had one and it would struggle to max most things.

A 560ti or hd6950

Those or the newer equivalents are need to max everything at that res.

I am thinking about some overclocking.Overclocked gtx 460 to 560ti speeds?Will it give me similar performance of the 560 stock?

Possibly. It's been a while since I had the card but it's certainly no slouch. Get a good overclocker and you will be mainly set. Maybe drop a few things in crysis etc but I wouldn't be dissapointed.

get the 768mb gtx 460 coz its way cheaper.
and did i just read someone say a 460 cant max new games at 1280*1024 ?
whoever said that is out of their mind today and better get their heads examined..lol

WHAT? I hope you have a benchmark to back up that claim...

The thing is at that resolution you will probably run into more CPU related issues that being said I would go with the cheaper choice.
November 14, 2012 3:39:23 PM

I have the 786mb and i max most things on 1080p. for that price difference and small screen the 1GB just is not worth it

I meant it performs at 1280x1024 the same as a 680 at 1080 roughly. Based off using a 560ti at that res then a 1.25ghz 670 at 1920x1200 :)

Definitely shouldn't be any kind of bottleneck then.
