Hi y'all,This is my first post here on Avsim, so hi! I'm wondering which will give me better performance in FSX; the Sparkle GeForce GT430, or the GTX580. The GT430 has much more memory, at 4GB, which is a lot, but it only has 96 stream processors, and a 128-bit interface. The GTX580 I have open in another window (which is just a random 580, not necessarily the one I'll get), has 512 streamers, and a 384-bit interface. The question is, will the stream processors and interface help FSX performance, or is mainly just the memory? Here's the links to the products;GT430 - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814187173GTX580 - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814130587The Core Clock, and Shader Clock are about the same in both.

Hello Adlai,Welcome to AVSIM. I hope that you will find the kind of support and enjoyment so many of us have. This is a hardware related matter, so I am going to move this thread to the Hardware forum about video cards.I suggest you make your way back into the FSX forum and introduce yourself again so we will get to know you, and you get to know us a bit more.Kind regards,
