I'm considering a new card...but I do not wish to name the contenders here because than many irrelevant aspects can come into consideration, so I would like to ask the question in purely technological terms. Consider two cards: they both have 8 pixel pipes. They both have the exact same GDDR3 memory of exact same 2.0 latency, both Samsung. Card A has: - 3 vertex pipes - higher default clocks 500/900 and can be securely overclocked to ~550/1100 (and maybe even a more) for everyday use. - has 128bit mem interface and 128MB of video mem Card B has: - 6 vertex pipes - lower default clocks 425/800 and can be securely overclocked to ~500/1000 for everyday use. - has 256bit mem interface and 256 of video mem. Card B is slightly more expensive (about 20%), but as the amounts are not huge, the price difference is not really big in real money. Which one would be theoretically better ? Are the higher speeds and overclockability more significant/important than the higher memory interface and more memory quantity ? Exactly in which situations in real life applications (read: games) would the better interface and more memory come into account ? And in which situations is the higher clock/memory speeds more important ? Thanks for any advice and comments.
