HD7730 ddr5 vs HD6670 ddr3 - best value for the buck???

hi, I m planing to get a lowend GPU for casual gaming in mid or low settings.
Plz help me in choosing one, hd7730 ddr5(sapphire) or hd6670 ddr3(HIS) ???

I know HD7730 ddr5 is better but the price diff between these is almost Rs.1000 ($17 to $20)
So is it really worth the price?
pls dont suggest hd7750 or better, my money is enough to buy any of those two i mentioned..

hd6670 ddr3- Rs.5100($85) or hd7730 ddr5- Rs.6200($104)

I am not planning to change my 250watt PSU immediately, will do after 5-6 months only if required, budget constrains :(
So power is one more constrain too...

Games in Mind - BF3, BF4, Farcry3, NFS Rivals, Civilization V, Crysis

My Spec:
Intel i3 3220
Dell Monitor with 1366x768 Resolution
RAM - Corsair DDR3 4 GB 1 stick
PSU- iBall 250w
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H
OS - Window 7 32bit

  1. HD7730! http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/radeon-r7-240-and-250,review-32874-7.html consumes less power than the HD6670 as well.
  2. Best answer
    Actually the used power is about the same, but 6670 uses a bit less (http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/radeon-r7-240-and-250,review-32874-9.html).
    It is possible that the PSU will not be enough for extended GPU load. Restarts are possible.
    I agree that 7730 is much better than 6670, it is worth the price difference.

    Thanks for the quick solution. I have ordered 7730.

    Update - Cancel the order for 7730 and finally opted for Sapphire 7770 ddr5 with Antec VP450P PSU...
