Looks like they are exactly the same. Maybe just some minor difference that I don't feel like looking for . Go with the cheaper one.

there is no difference what so ever. The cheaper one is an 8 hour sale so they just bumped the price down $10 for 8 hours to get you to buy it. Both are great cards.

actually i think that the KO has a custom made copper heatsink so it will OC better like someone already said. if you can, get the KO if its the same price.

The KO covers the memory to keep it cooler. I think it would cool better for nice oc's.

... cmon... how much do u think copper can change?

But just go with GT... its more common, so u can get more support without people going huh?

Jus save u the $10 or whatever it is and get some cheap fan grill or other acessory u really dont need

Get the KO. Support issues won't matter because it's all the same chips on the inside. And copper does make a difference.

yeah, the difference is the heatsink and fan location, if your oc'ing, the KO looks like the better option.

I did notice something different thought looks like the KO its more new than the GT not just for the heatsink but for the names:


eVGA 256-P2-N563-AX

eVGA 256-P2-N564

AHHH!! I know now why there are both different the KO its by default with a little more juice than the GT, yup one of the person that posted at review in the KO said it but not only that if you look closer to both the photos it said it as well.

KO: 520/1540

GT: 500/1500

Ok I think I'm going with the KO, now I only need to sell my 6800GT so I can have enough to buy the KO
