    Been considering getting a GTX460, but I was wondering what the difference was between the 768MB and 1GB versions, other than obviously more memory, and the 768MB having 192-bit bus width and the 1GB having 256-bit. Is there a huge performance difference?

    May I suggest you to read any of the 460 reviews that W1zaard made. The short answer is 3-5 fps.

    Imo, I dont think it would be much of a difference at all.

    Looks like there's not much to worry about then.

    I'd personally go the 1gb, differences are more than just memory size and bus width

    you lose 8 ROPS, down from 32 to 24, which means pixel fillrate, which accounts for much of your AA grunt in a gfx card.

    all in all losing 64-bit's of bus width, 256mb of ram, and 8 ROPS is a kick in the pants to me, I feel the only reason it evens out is the identical clockspeeds, considering many current engines favour clockspeeds...

    I'd spend the extra 20-30 bucks for those extras :toast:

    Hmm, if I'm gonna pay $220 for a 1GB GTX460, I might as well pay $225 for the 465 with more shaders.
