Hi Guys,

Apologises if this is a really silly question but I'm pretty new to PC Building. I'm looking at Graphics cards for my new build and am a bit confused. My question is, why are the two cards listed below so different in price? I've compared their specks and if anything the cheaper one is better? Am I missing something?

Thanks guys!

Link to card on overclockers didn't work, so not sure which you are comparing with. Can you confirm.

The other one is this one. Gigabyte.

As for differences,there aren't any they are the same card. Both have the same Manufacturer ID: GV-N550WF2-1GI

Hey guys, sorry but the over clockers one your looking at wasn't the one i meant. the one I meant is this one

Overclockers

I know it says its over clocked but from what I can see I don't understand why its over £60 more expensive?

I think there is some mistake here the Ebuyer GPU is a 5500Ti whilst the Gigabyte GPU is a 560Ti, the 500ti is a pretty rubbish card but the 560 is pretty decent, particularly for gaming.

The link in my first post is correct as although your link to the Overclockers card was broken I got enough information to find the GPU by the last four numbers in the link,1810

Ok cool. I guess my next question for everybody is this:

I am about to build my first gaming pc :) What graphics card is the best for a budget of between £100 -£150?

Is the best card for that range the GT 560 then?

OK the GTX 560Ti is far better than the GTX 550Ti and as your budget is between £100-£150 can I suggest this GPU GTX 560 which if you look here compares very well with the GTX 560Ti.

Brilliant thanks for this help.

Next stupid question ;) - Does it matter about the make of the GTX 560 is? As I see there are manufacturers like EVGA and Gigabyte

I like EVGA as the have an excellent customer/warranty service. But generally it does not matter.
