Yikes! I know what the problem is now. The specs straight from the

Thanks for the info.  I bet that is it.  what is Nvidia thinking when they
allow vendors to sell products with the same name but diff specs.  The end
user has no clue on what to buy!

Crossing my fingers that the 210 that i just bought will do temp 2x (can
that I can tell the diff over bob2x).  UPS says card will be here Monday so
Ill know then!
