HD 6670 2GB or HD 6570 4GB, which will perform better on playing FC3, Skyrim, Crysis?

My budget is about 90$, i'm playing on a 64-bit AMD Athlon X2 Dual-Core Processor 5200+ @2.7Ghz, 3GB of DDR2 RAM, and a 600W Generic PSU

  1. Here's a picture of my PSU, some info you might need about it,
    I'm a budget PC gamer (I mostly play on the console because I can't build my own PC)
  2. More than 1GB is useless for this GPU`s and it should be DDR5 RAM and you could add 1GB RAM to your system to be at 4GB and you could run the RAM in dual channel, if the mainboard support it. The RAM upgrade would also benefit you in all programs and games.
  3. I can't buy in Amazon because I don't have a Paypal account, Here's the shop's price list, from what I know HD6570 4GB or HD6670 2GB is the best graphics card they have. I'm only 15 by the way. So, which is better for gaming(on max settings)? HD6570 4GB or HD6670 2GB?
  4. 6670 is more powerful than a 6570 regardless of installed ram, neither is powerful enough to benefit from more than 1GB and a card with (G)DDR5 is always faster than a card with (G)DDR3 if it is the same GPU.
  5. Best answer
    Either 6670HD 1GB DDR5 RAM or use the saved money and buy a better card. The website does not load for me, cant see prices.
  6. Here's my motherboard's specs: , I'd also be glad to know if my processor is enough for Farcry 3 or Skyrim. (or GTA 4)
  7. Anything below the radeon 7770 will really struggle with far cry and crysis. when I say struggle I'm really saying that FC3 and crysis will be unplayable. skyrim would be playable on medium. As for the amount of ram, don't get tricked into spending extra on a low end 4GB card. Even 2GB isn't reasonable on a budget. You're just paying extra for ram that won't make a performance increase. I just bought the Sapphire 7790 factory OC from tigerdirect because they have an amazing mail in rebate right now. The 7790 can do BF3 on high/ultra, if you overclocked it you'd be able to very comfortably play on ultra. Far cry and crysis are stretching the 7790 but depending on the rest of the system they're playable on high/medium.
    If you don't want to spend the extra cash on the 7790 at least go for the 7770. It'll be well worth the money.

  8. At minimum go with a HD7750 1GB it is about the best your CPU can handle but the CPU will be struggling with some of those newer games.
  9. I had the 9600GT and it was playable without problem with Far Cry 3, for Crysis 3 I had even a lower AMD card with direct x 11 but my CPU was a bit better than yours. How much do the better GPU`s cost with 1 GB DDR5 RAM?
  10. There's no GPU's with DDR5 in the shop i'm currently looking at, sad, I know. The best I could buy is either HD6670 2GB DDR3 or HD6570 4GB DDR3 (If ATI), GT630 4GB DDR3 or GT630 2GB DDR3 (If Nvidia). I'll try to look at different shops if they have better graphics cards. I want to know any graphics card that my rig can handle. (600W PSU, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5200+, 3GB RAM DDR2)(I'll be playing at 1366 x 768)
  11. ROLF: It's funny because a HD6850 with 1GB would smoke them both.
    - No GDDR5? Considering there's probably more GDDR5 chips in the world than there are people...
    - GDDR3 only parts? = Walk away.... no, RUN FROM THAT STORE NOW!
