Best Radeon HD 5670?

I need a video card with low power consumption. I decided on the Radeon HD 5670. I was wondering, what's the best 5670? I see there are several manufacturers and I can't decide which one to get. Link to the 5670s here.

  1. I suppose if money doesn't matter the MSI Cyclone is the best. Really they only vary much in terms of the cooler and on such a low power card the cooler isn't really a big deal. I'd just get one of the cheap Sapphire cards myself.

    Which Sapphire would you recommend? I'm completely illiterate when it comes to computer hardware and this will be my first time ever even opening a computer.
  3. There's one for $78 and one for $80. I believe they are the exact same card except one has a VGA out and the other comes with an adapter for it.
  4. I would choose HIS one, it blows the hot air out the back, make temps cooler... :)
  5. Whichever HD 5670 you end up choosing, just make sure to avoid paying extra for the 1GB version since the performance improvement over the 512MB is practically negligible.

    Unless you have some pretty bad case air flow I don't think that should matter much on a low power card like the HD5670. Considering the $26 price difference I would pass myself.

    Yup, agree, HD5670 is a low power card.
    Well, if the OP has a good case then it's okay then... :)
  8. the XFX is the best, no peronsal experience but 70 bucks with a lifetime warranty, can't go wrong :)

  9. As much as I dislike ASUS,

    their EAH5670 512mb DDR5 was pretty decent, ran all the games my son threw at it, could hardly hear it, and its temps never spiked above normal.
    Here in Canada it goes for $99 retail
  10. Hey guys,I was wondering if the GDDR5 version of this card makes any 'huge' difference from GDDR3 version...And,is the GDDR5 version not available in markets right now,or are they permanently discontinued?
    Thanks in advance
