Hello,

Could anyone please tell me what is the bit on graphic cards?
For example, 1GB on 64 bit, or 1GB on 512 bit.

Whats the bits for, do they bring better resolution, or better colours?

whoops ok - Had a stupid moment.


bit width!

which would be the width of the bus between the video processor and the video memory.

1GB on 128 is faster then 1GB on 64

you've also gota watch out for the memory speed... some times they'll throw a GDDR or a DDR, don't by the DDR cards buy GDDR.

You've really gota buy video cards on the down and dirty tech specs and not the model numbers..... they try to trick you left and right with that stuff... and its always to get you ot buy a crappy card for to much money.

I always buy them on their specs lol, i find it really dumb to buy them by the model number. I never understood why they give the model numbers in System configs over the magazines etc.
Thanks for the answer :)

I agree the model numbers make no sense at all. Then toss in how manuf make their own spin on things

GT...GTS.. GTX... GTSXRXYZ

then turns out if you take the GTS model with better cooling((or just speeding up the fan doh)) and overclock it, it will run as fast as the highest model card. - EVGA is bad about this.

video card buying is a pain in the a** :-P
