In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GT 240.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 182 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GT 240. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 29.2 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 560 Ti has a 182 MHz higher core clock speed and 24 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GT 240. This results in the GTX 560 Ti providing 19 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 560 Ti was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GT 240, and so the GTX 560 Ti is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GT 240.

The GTX 560 Ti has 256 MB more video memory than the GeForce GT 240, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 560 Ti also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 560 Ti has 67.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 240, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 560 Ti is much better than the GeForce GT 240.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has 448 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GT 240 has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 560 Ti is 656 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 240 is 106. The GTX 560 Ti having 550 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 560 Ti delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GT 240.

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition requires 210 Watts to run and the GeForce GT 240 requires 69 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 550 Watts for the GTX 560 Ti and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 240. The GTX 560 Ti requires 141 Watts more than the GeForce GT 240 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 560 Ti may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 240.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition is a high-end Graphics Card based on the 270-A1 variant of the 40nm GF110 GPU of the Fermi architecture.
The 270-A1 variant of the GF110 Core comes with 14 SMx activated and thus offers 448 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs, on a 320-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 Edition has its central unit clocked at 732MHz and its memory clock operates at 950MHz - same as GeForce GTX 570.
Compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti, the rated board TDP is around 40W higher but its performance surpasses it largely, while some factory overclocked versions surpass GeForce GTX 570.
Overview
GeForce GT 240 is a Middle-Class Graphics Card based on the Second Revision of the Tesla Architecture.

Architecture
Tesla was NVIDIA's First Unified Shader Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT215-450-A2 which has 8 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 96 Shader Processing Units, 32 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 550MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 850MHz.

Features
DirectX 10.1 Support (10.0 Hardware Default) and support for NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology, Dual-stream Hardware Acceleration, PhysX, CUDA, HybridPower and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 69W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for Power meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat above a Radeon HD 4670, meaning it is much faster than the more recent Fermi GeForce GT 430.
