Default eVGA 7950 GT KO SC vs. 7950 GT KO

I know the difference between the 7950 GT KO Superclocked an GT KO are
basically 40MHz in the GPU speed. But does this make a whole lot of
difference. But there is only a $25 difference between the two if you check
online stores for best prices. But why spend an extra $25 if there is
negligible difference. I don't care to mod, overclock, or revise BIOS if not
necessary, just want a solid performing 512MB video card.

I am replacing my 7900 GT KO SC with a 7950 only because I am building
another PC for someone else, and they said it would be fine if I used my
7900 GT that is being used in my current machine. I figured if I have to buy
a video card anyways, he can get a discount, and I can get something a
little better. Plus it seems games these days are beginning to like 512MB.

Default eVGA 7950 GT KO SC vs. 7950 GT KO

The difference will be between 0% and 7%, depending on whether the game is
limited by memory bandwidth or by shader processing.

Would you pay $25 more to play a game at 32 fps instead of 30 fps?

40mhz will make very little difference to your perception of how well a
game runs. It's more to give bragging rights in 3Dmark06. My 7900GT KO
would artifact in 3DMark06 Deep Freeze so I downclocked the ram to 660mhz
from 750mhz. I got no more artifacting after that and I couldn't tell the
difference in games, of course my 3DMark06 score was a bit lower though. I
did do an RMA and got one that runs fine at 750mhz but it's really no big
deal. If it's only $25.00 extra I would maybe buy it anyway.

Well, I went with the 7950 GT KO Superclocked anyhow. It ended up being
about $20 difference. Guess I can part with $20 for an extra 1 fps... LOL.
