Top one it has 256mb ram and the other only has 128 and if there the same card there clock speed and other things are going to be the same part from the 256 will be quicker . Top One is the best

Go for the 256MB one - always the best way to go and it doesn't much matter about the other points.

Dringing? What's that all about? Drinking?

David is far older than 18 as far as I know; and it doesn't matter to me because I'm Tea-Total. So I'm not sure about your point!
