I have been working with a Tesla870 during a fellowship. Now I need to get a card for implementing some image reconstruction algorithms for tomography in our lab. As the tesla is quite expensive, I was planning to buy a GTX285 or a GTX295. But I canÂ´t decide which one, a GTX285 with 2gb ram it has almost the same price than a GTX295. The GTX295 it has twice the cores than the GTX285, but on the other hand I have less memory and also for programming I need to split my algorithms between the two cards inside the GTX295.
Which of these two cards would you suggest me to use for implementing scientific algorithms?
