My name is Brad, and I have recently been looking around for a new video card for my PC. I have narrowed my research down to 2 cards, but cant tell which would be the best choice. The two cards are listed below along with direct links to the website that I will be purchasing the card from:
Now, I have taken the time to look and research both of these cards and the differences between the two falls down in to differences between 3 specs, which are listed below:
First Card ($169.99)
Core Clock - 850 MHz
Shader Clock - 1700 Mhz
CUDA Cores - 336
Second Card ($209.99)
Core Clock - 900 MHz
Shader Clock - 1800 MHz
CUDA Cores - 384
Now, I guess my question for whoever is reading this is simply this: Is the $40 difference between the card's going to have a significant impact on the card's performance simply due to a total of 150 MHz and 48 CUDA Cores?
All 3 cards I mentioned are better than a GTX560ti in terms of performance and power efficiency. Plus they all have 2GB VRAM which is very useful in modern games. It's really a waste to get either the GTX560ti or non-ti right now unless they are really cheap.
