    I think it has been covered a hundred or so times at least... The MX series of cards are budget cards, supposed to be a "value" card but it isn't even much of that because some of the older cards outperform them and run around the same price.

    I think this one is actually a difficult question to answer. The two cards you are comparing have distinct advantages over each other depending on what game/app you're running. What do you intend to do with this? Which games do you play? OpenGL or D3D? Which game engines do you prefer? Take a look at that Tom's VGA board and compare some things (as closely as you can) that relate to the games you like to play.
