And will the toxic be louder than the standard card?thanks Bailey08787 15:05 12 Aug 2009 first link should have been this one:click here-(x16)-900MHz-GDDR5-GPU-750MHz-DL-DVI-I-HDMI-D-Sub-HDCP GaT7 16:27 12 Aug 2009 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. GP.S. For troublesome links use click here the second time aroung. E.g. your broken link via tinyurl click here GaT7 16:34 12 Aug 2009 Free delivery for Scan via click here (easier) or click here. G Bailey08787 12:15 13 Aug 2009 you truly are a font of all knowledgeAre 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? GaT7 12:25 13 Aug 2009 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.
