First one, you get 3 games with it. It's also better IMO.

First one, while it's clockspeed is slightly slower than the second one, it has an extra gigabyte of memory.

NVIDIA is better for gaming while ATI is better in performance. There are some games which optimized are for ATI, but nevertheless NVIDIA is still better for most of the games. Get ATI if you're doing some multimedia things like movie editing.

ATI doesn't exist, its amd now.

@user Majatek:
I agree with you, but I've been reading that memory doesnt really matter

@user palomino:
I meant putting the games aside, which one is better

Well if the 1 gig more of memory doesn't really matter then, then you'll want more speed, so go for the second one.

But why? I've posted a reason as to why the OP shouldn't. What's yours that the OP should?

That was so funny I forgot to laugh.

Actually it wasn't funny at all, that was extremely lame - Besides he listed two specific graphics cards, he wasn't asking what he should get instead of them, he was asking what cards out of the two he should get.

The Nvidia card. It's faster + Nvida has better drivers than AMD + most games are optimized for Nvidia (so some even run faster / look better with a bad Nvidia card than with a good AMD card). I already used several different Nvidia and AMD cards so I know what I'm talking about.

Sure, the AMD card has 1 additional GB VRAM but this makes no difference for gaming because most games don't even use that much VRAM and they are commonly designed to work well with much less VRAM. So the pure speed of the GPU is much more important than this. The additional GB VRAM of the AMD card would be a big plus if you do a lot of video editing though.

what about this card instead of the XFX Amd card, it's clock speed is the same as the Nvidia card.

I would still choose the Nvidia card because of the reasons I already mentioned. I would actually buy none of those because they are too expensive in my opinion. Buying the super highend versions isn't worth it.

Yeah, but I'm going to sell the free games they come with ($100 for Nvidia and $180 for AMD).
