Need to know if the Gigabyte Radeon HD 6670 2GB Video Card will work for gaming on my PC

So I'm on a tight budget and I'd like to not have to rely on my onboard Radeon 3000 graphics in my ASUS motherboard.(Fairly new build) I was wondering if the Gigabyte Radeon HD 6670 2GB Video Card would work for Star Trek online or Starwars the old republic on my display(max is 1600x900). What can I expect out of this card in this situation?

  1. How low is your budget? I personally would go no lower than a 7750, which you can get for $90. Also the 1GB version will be enough. By the time you have settings high enough to use 2gb of VRAM a card that low end will be overloaded and the game will be unplayable. The 6670 will work but don't expect to max out the games.

  2. I should also clarify two things. Because of budget I a bought a ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3. I'm looking to keep it under a hundred for the video card. I don't know if my MoBo will support that card...

    You will be fine. As long as the mobo has a PCI-Express slot it will work. That card is low-power enough that it shouldn't even need external power from your PSU.

    Edit: Looking at your motherboard it does indeed have a PCI-E slot. The long, dark blue slot is PCI-E.
  4. within 100$ you can get a lot better tha hd6670 i.e., hd7750:

    or even a better card than hd7750, if u have a decent psu:

  5. A 6670 will run those, but definitely look at the 7750.

  7. And the hd7770? it is more powerful and would be a good choice if u have a decent 450W psu :)
  8. best options within 100$

    A radeon hd 7770 if you have a decent 450watts psu (which i doubt) an hd 7750 if you have a weak psu.

    Well without knowing that much about your psu ,my recommendation still would be an hd 7750 .go with this card . Believe me its the best card today which draws all of its power from motherboard (via pcie slot). And you'll get around 50 PERCENT much better performance from the hd 6670 if you buy this card. Its the best in its category

    Well I have this exact card oc'd to 1000mhz RAM and 885mhz Core and it runs star trek at max settings 1080x1920 at 60fps(Vsnc) so it can go higher. just saying
  10. you should go for 6670 its great card and takes up only 63 watts of your PSU so it should run just fine if you can expand your budget a bit the go for ddr5 version which is even better
