I was looking into a new graphics card, and I noticed that the MSI 660 Ti PE 2GD5/OC is the same price as the same card with 3GD5/OC. Is there something different about these two cards (besides the VRAM) that makes 3GB version the same price as the 2GB version? I provided the links down below.

(I think I'll be going the 2GB version, since I'm only using one monitor and dont really need the extra memory)

the PE (Power Edition) is an overclocked version though it only comes with 2gb memory. if you don't intend to multi monitor in the future then you don't have to worry about less VRAM on the PE version. 2GB should be plenty for majority of the games. when you really need 3GB on most games @1080p most likely it is time to upgrade for cards that have more grunt to run such games
