More about good
  1. run what, games, photoshop, general purpose???
  2. It will run most game at medium graphics quality at 1920 x 1200 with decent performance. Also do not buy the 1GB RAM version since the additional 512mb of RAM yields very little performance gain.

    Below is a review of the HD 5670 1GB, all games maxes out graphics quality:

    Nearly Identical question, but which rig is better between these two:
    I game infrequently, but like to have good performance from the cpu. Games: DAO, Civ5, SC2, mostly strategy or RPGS - little bit of FPS- MW2
