Which one to take ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys
Does anyone know which one should i take between these 2 ?

Asus HD 6950 1GB DirectCU II

MSI HD 6950 2GB 2PM2D2GD5 (reference card)

Which one is better for gaming with this information.
I will be running games at 1920x1080 with textures at MAX
I won't have AA on, unless IF those jagged lines would annoy me so much then i would turn 2x AA maximum.And if possible if i ever see a jagged line on 2x AA, and that jagged line would also annoy me, then i would turn 4x AA and no more, no matter will i see or not jagged lines.
I won't play games like Crysis, Metro 2033 and those on benchmarks.
Only GTA IV, BFBC2, Witcher 2, COD MW2, GTA SA, TES IV: Oblivion, NFS MW, Counter Strike 1.6 and Counter Strike Source.
I will also have my Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition overclocked to 4.2 GHz
BTW, recommend which one of those 2 should i choose.
Thanks

Well it never hurts to have extra video ram for when you want to crank up the AA to max, however you are starting you want to play some games that don't completely tax a graphics card and at that resolution you could probably get away with the cooler runnning Asus card.

I know that, i only compare these 2 because Asus one has 2 coolers and i'm going to overclock any card which i take, so that is why i wanted to know between these 2, which one should i take.
