Aktiv 2x DVI HDMI DDR5 issue

  1. Hi guys,
    I recently decided to buy a new graphic card and go with Gigabyte Radeon HD 5850, but as I was going to purchase it, I stumbled accros the very same graphic card that was like 20 dollars more expensive but was called: GIGABYTE HD5850 1GB (256) aktiv 2xDVI HDMI DDR5 (instead of simply: GIGABYTE VGA ATI Radeon HD5850 1GB DDR5).
    Now, I don't understand the difference really here. The first one has aditional DVI port right ? but there shouldnt be a difference in performance.. ? Since I'm no expert, I don't know what if I should buy the more expensive one since I dont know what would I use it for (I mean the advantage)...
    thanks for any help !

    GIGABYTE's website GIGABYTE HD5850 only have one HD 5850 so im quite sure both of the cards your talking about are the same
