Apart from a capacitor type and some of the markings on the left sticker it's exactly the same.
hee's a snippet from a detailed review of the card
"... . The Gigabyte GV-R435OC-512I videocard draws very little power, with a total system power draw of only 79W at idle, and 109W at peak according to our tests. It's also stays quite cool, ... ." So, I wonder, as some may be drawn to think this is a gaming card and therefore, of its generation, have power hungry peripherals, to the target maket it's necessary to emphasise a minimum psu which as the 755 is not a gaming machine but a 'green' workstation built for optimised low power consumption is not applicable (?) it seems a better minimum is really 300 or a bit less with 400 as a safe in most cases minimum. http://www.pcstats.c...id=2408&page=10 goes through a number of heavyload benchmark tests which in my case it will never experience. As heat is not an issue and 80 is not far off 75 even with possible added load I'll give this a bit more thought. I always have an option to downgrade to a 256 and a 32 m card.
Thank's for the help in thinking through this.
