Assuming the core speeds are the same, the DDR3 card would use less. You have less ram, and DDR3 uses a lower voltage then DDR2.

GDDR3... GDDR2 is like a horse and carriage verses the GDDR3 automobile

GDDR3 as the ram is clocked faster. With the narrow 128-bit bus it makes a difference.

Why? I would think it couldn't cost much less then the 4670. The extra $5 would be worth it.
