I am currently considering a new graphics card and because of my budget have narrowed it down to 2 different ones.

One has a higher clock speed the other has a lower clock speed but has 512mb of ram instead of 256mb of ram. My question is whether the reduce in ram for a higher clock speed is worth it.

Get the one with the extra ram, you can always over clock the card yourself

This comes with 512Mb of DDR3 video ram. This will help much more and its not much more expensive!!
