    Whats the best way to compare the performance of two gpus?

    What I mean is, each card has a mem/core/shader value, and lets say both has a 128bit speed... Would it be fair to compare two cards like the Nvidia 8600gt and a oc'ed 8500gt if they had the same mem/core/shader values?

    If they had the exact same values, could they be the same speed? I know one uses DDR2 and the other DDR3, but I'm still not sure.

    Thanks for any info:toast:

    Read reviews. In the end it's always real world performance that matters. Compare numbers for applications you use.
