  1. Yes the GTX 260 is the faster processor.

    The GT 240 is too new to be on the THG charts, but you can see from this article that the GT 240 is slower than 8800 GT.

    Which is considerable slower than the GTX 260:

    tks again Deborah
  3. What kind of graphic design work do you do? Have you tried just using the GT 240 to see if it is adequate first?

    A lot of graphic design - such as illustration, web page design and layout, and simple pictures do not require a lot of graphics card horsepower - it is really more for video 3D use like in gaming.
