Request: How to interpret GPU specs, and why is one board "better" then the other?
I am coming from old school GPU's. Yes. I remember my 4mb geforce being the shiznit running counter strike 1.3 at 40fps. It used to be entirely memory based... the more it had, the better it was, that was almost a universal constant.
Now that I am getting back into the PC mod world, Im honestly flabbergasted at the level of changes between different cards with the same memory.
1) which specs are most important now?
2) Can you compare a 7770 to a GTX 780 Ti, and why the 780 is (clearly) the winner, and why it's better. (im not dumb, I understand higher memory, faster clock speed, "MORE IS MORE" is better, but why is it SO MUCH better?)
I appreciate any information given... thanks.
