the 1gb has a bit more oomph under the hood :L http://tpucdn.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeF...es/perfrel.gif


but if the price difference is 40 bucks and you dont game at more than 1680x the no worries

what was the special price? 299?

dont forget silverstone, although the gent above dislikes them with passion. anywhere from the cheap,but still professional looking under 40 bucks ps04b to something juicier like the 250 dollar fortress 2. had the pleasure to work with both, albeit much less with the fortress.



edit. intel does better at per core numbers, but if you have to go between a hexa amd and a quad intel for rendering etc pourposes? amd all the way, 100 dollar mobo,870a indeed, will kick arse. nice combo, too close to 1055t for that cpu.
