10Mhz less on the core, but 1600 mem speed. $50 after MIrB.

$10 more after the MIrB. But 149Mhz core more, and 18Mhz more on the ram speed.

Good find, I think my 6670 search was flawed. The only other trade-off is the DDR3 vs. the DDR5, but I think it might be negligible.

The GT 640 still looks like it has a sweet spot, especially with the higher amount of v-ram.

I also edited that post and added a faster GT 640 for $10 more.

The only consideration will be higher power consumption on faster/factory OC GPUs. I have no idea how close to the PSU cap he is on his current rig, but I think if he sticks to any one of these three GPUs he should be fine.
