Do you want to borrow my glasses ?

Edit:- sorry could not resist. Serioulsy though, the top card has the NVidia reference cooler on it, the bottom one has the BFG dual fan cooler with blue led's,,, just like mine:D Some say the refernce cooler is best, but the dual fan one seems to keep my card cool. Both cards are probably clocked the same.

Well thats helpful. I said they have different fan and heatsink setup. And one's blue and the other is green. But performance wise?

Sry Rar.... both cards will be the same performance wise. the only thing that might change will be the overclock you might get. I get 425/1150 out of the blue one, still with reasonable temps.
Just out of curiousity, what price do they go for nowadays ?

I found one for $140.00 and was curious about it. My friend has the blue one. I was planning on changing the stock cooler out and put a Zalman on it.

I had the green one.. and after an RMA, I now have a blue one.

I really can't tell the difference... No, I never tried OCing them.

I had the blue one, one day the temps shot thru the roof so I turned off my pc as quickly as possible and opened the case to find that one of the mounting screws had somehow shot off (spring loaded :D) and bounced around my case.

So I RMA'd it and I recieved a green one with the ref cooler. It stays about 5-10c cooler than my blue one did so im happy.

no difference performance wise. i used to own the blue one, sweet card. hit ultra clocks easily. i never had a problem with overheating on mine.
