Default Which one?

Gainward 7950GT Golden Sample 256MB vs Gainward 7950GT 512MB

Right narrowed it down to these two, anyone know the difference in performance? I imagine they would both give the same results.

What are the prices? I haven't seen a exact comparison of them but if it is neglible (sp?) price difference than go for the 512 one. I can't find the Gainward 256MB version but the 512 has slightly faster clock speeds compared to the Leadtek - maybe 5<10fps difference.

Last time I checked the "£" symbol stands for pounds (Sterling).

The 512 version is slower so I am thinking it would be slightly lower in performance, but there are a few games (DOOM 3) that like the extra memory...

I would have to admit that 512 would win me over in this case.
