Computer video card question

I am upgrading and the choice is between these two and I can't figure out which is better:

EVGA 04G-P4-2649-KR GeForce GT 640
4GB 128-bit
DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card $110
or
EVGA 01G-P4-2650-KR GeForce GTX 650
1GB 128-bit
GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card $105

which is more important .... the 4GB vs 1GB or DDR3 vs GDDR5 ?
Getting a 4GB GDDR5 would be very expensive.

First off what card do you have now, and what kind of things do you use your computer for? Also are you flexible on chip set manufacturer?
Nvidia or AMD (ATI)

In that price range I would be more likely to go with the Radeon HD 7770

But depending on what you have for a card now, it will meet or not meet your expatiations

hdrider82 wants to know Dino or Syn?
Good question Fred. The mother board on my 7 year old Dell took a dump on me. When I look at new computers you can pick what video card you want. The nvidia card looked good but then,,,, im not sure.

You would have to check if this PCI-E 3.0 card would work for your motherboard tho
