Well, as the title says, im looking to buy one of these cards:

Brand EVGA
Model 01G-P3-1335-KR
GPU GeForce GT 430 (Fermi)
Core Clock 700MHz
Shader Clock 1400MHz
CUDA Cores 96
MemoryEffective Memory Clock 1200MHz
Memory Size 1GB
Memory Interface 64-bit
Memory Type DDR3
RAMDAC 400 MHz

vs

Brand EVGA
GPU GeForce GT 520 (Fermi)
Core Clock 810MHz
Shader Clock 1620MHz
CUDA Cores 48
Memory Effective Memory Clock 1400MHz
Memory Size 1GB
Memory Interface 64-bit
Memory Type DDR3
RAMDAC 400 MHz

im undecided because the GT430 has 96 cores vs 48 cores of the 520, but the 520 has 110Mhz + in core clock and 220Mhz + in shader clock. Im going to use these cards to play old games or in low-medium level graphic settings. So., wich one should i buy? :bounce:

Or even a Radeon 5670 can be found at the same price of the GT430. And its loads better too.
If u can't find the 5670 then get the 430 or as someone else said the 240 since you're gonna be playing older games and won't need Dx11

well, the thing is, in that thread the GT430 has a memory interface of 128, not 64 like the one i posted. I already browsed for reviews of a GT430 with 64 bit but i haven't found any. I have a very limited budget because i will buy a new case and a psu, so those cards are the only options i have. :p

lol, i know, but i just going to use this to play FIFA 13, NFS World, and some PS2 games, so i guess its ok, right know im using a 5450 (it's dying) and from what i know the 520 and 430 are way better.
