I've been offered to buy a used ASUS EAH4670/DI/1GD3 graphics card.

I went price-scouting to see if the offer I was given was fair, and I found out that there's a similar card, labelled ASUS EAH4670/DI/1GD3 V2.

Question is; What's the difference? What's with the V2? What does it mean? Is it just a BIOS upgrade that I can do myself? Updated driver-software which I can download myself? Or is the card actually a better version--faster, more reliable (physical changes to the print), etc.?

I looked them up on this Hardware.info (Dutch version sorry!)

The difference seems to be the cooler. For the rest I can't really see a difference ANYWHERE. So if cooling isn't going to be an issue and/or you don't mind noise levels, take the one that's the cheapest/easiest to get.

ASUS EAH4670/DI/1GD3 and ASUS EAH4670/DI/1GD3/V2

Seems I've got the newer version, as far as the heatsink goes. Thanks Ivo :) –  roosteronacid Mar 30 '10 at 19:58
