In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the GT 730 and the GT 730 are equal.

The GT 730 and the GT 730 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GT 730 and the GT 730 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gainward 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

The GT 730 has 1024 MB more video memory than the GT 730, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 730 also has superior memory performance overall.

The memory bandwidth of the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gainward 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition are the same, which means the GT 730 and the GT 730 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gainward 1GB Edition and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition have 96 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, the two GPUs have extremely similar stats, so any gaming performance difference would most likely be negligible.

The GeForce GT 730 v3 Gainward 1GB Edition requires 49 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 730 v3 Gigabyte 2GB Edition requires 49 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GT 730. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.
