HD 6670 DDR5 or HD 7750 DDR3?

The two video cards I'm looking at are the HIS HD 6670 with 1GB DDR5 and the PowerColor HD 7750 with 1GB DDR3. I can get either one for about $60.

Should I go with the 6670 because of the DDR5 or with the 7750 because it's newer? Or maybe you could suggest something better that doesn't cost too much more?

Thanks!

    That's a tough call. The HD 7750 will be hampered by the slower VRAM. I think it may be a tossup. Or slightly in favor of the HD 7750. Can you up your budget to $99? This will blow both of them out of the water: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127687

    Thanks a bunch! The place where I buy from has that same card for just under $80 :wahoo:

    I was just about to buy the 7750, too. Literally, I was just about to head out xD

    I'll definitely be getting the 7770. Thanks again!
  4. $80 WOW that is tempting. And to think I paid $70 for a 6670 last year

    $80 for a HD 7770! Wow! I suppose it is a local store, not someplace one can order from online?
    Just be aware that the HD 7770 will require a 6 pin PCIe aux cable to feed it. Usually an adapter for PCIe to Molex comes with the card, though... if you have a fairly good PSU.
