The speed difference won't be that noticeable because the difference is memory based.

Terrible advice.

I know this thread is old, but it applies to new stuff too.

Any card with DDR3 and GDDR5 versions will see a huge performance penalty with DDR3 in games. Sometimes up to 50% slower, due to having only 1/2 the bandwidth or less.

I'm speaking from experience on this, I was given a GTS 450 DDR3 after my friend upgraded. Its much slower than my HD6770. And a 6770 should be really close to a GTS 450.
