Hi all - first - I am a n00b on hardware, admitted and signed. I dont understand much hardware in terms of specifics so I rely on you - the gurus :) 

I have a mobo P5B Premium and want a new card (burned the old one)
My processor is Intel Core2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.50GHz (under my Device Manager I have it listed 4 times - not sure why)
4 GB of RAM - Corsair XMS2 2x2 DDR2

Currently ATI Radeon HD4* 2x512 crossfire

I am trying to decide between several:
Palit Geforce GTX650 1GB {or 2GB} (DDR5) 1 or 2 gb of RAM - I dont know if more ram is better here

Sapphire 7770 GHz 1GB OC GDDR5

Sapphire 7750 2GB DDR3

Sapphire 6570 (PCI Express x 16, 4 GB)

Also I heard that it is not good but was offered this:
MSI GT 630 (PCI Express 16, 4 GB GDDR3)


What are your opinions?

i would go with the 7770 2 gb ddr5 if its possible(!), its enough memory for the actual games.

the 4 gb ddr3 are missleading. streamingprocessors and stuff is way more important on any graka, then the memory.

Would you go with Sapphire 7770 GHz Edition 1GB or Sapphire 7770 GHz 1GB OC GDDR5 ? or you meant 7750 2gb card? that one is even cheaper at the moment at my local retailer.

You could also look into a 7790/260x (depending on how much more expensive it is) :p

So I went with Sapphire HD 7790 (not OC because my mobo cant handle it anyways - PCI 3 versus my PCI 1)

Will be tested shortly :) 


Thank you for all your help!
