Difference between two cards

  Bailey08787 14:54 12 Aug 2009


I plan to purchase one of the following two cards:

click here-(x16)-900MHz-GDDR5-GPU-750MHz-DL-DVI-I-HDMI-D-Sub-HDCP

The first one is the standard edition, the second the toxic edition.

Both feature Vapor-X technology, which is the main reason I intend to buy one of these, as quiet operation is a priority for me.

My query is, does the toxic have any real advantages over the standard card? And will the toxic be louder than the standard card?

first link should have been this one:

The Toxic version will be the better performer out of the two on account of its superior out of the box clock figures: 950/750 vs 1000/780.

If there isn't a large difference between the two in terms of price, choose the Toxic version as it also comes with a Vapor-X cooler - see click here. G

you truly are a font of all knowledge

Are the differences in clock figures particular significant?

Plus will the higher clock figures necessitate a harder-working fan / louder fan in operation?

Or do you think the Vapor-X will run at the same speeds / provide the same levels of cooling / noise levels on both cards?

Well, to answer all your questions in a nutshell, I'd go for the Toxic (if it wasn't significantly more expensive), as the difference in noise/cooling is going to be negligible. G
