I have no idea, maybe the tests that are run favour the lower version card, similar to Half Life 2 is better with the x800 but the 6800 GT/U is better with Doom ....

is this card any good
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

660GT 128mb but its GDDR3 which makes the card better i beleive.

Which monitors can you use with it too, will it work with tft and crt?
(might be a stupid question but just wanna check)

edit: appears newegg dont do international so thats that down the drain
