5670 512 MB vs 1 GB

I noticed in the reviews written by tom's, the HD 5670 1 GB never counts as the recommended GPU. Does 5670 512 MB version really performs at the same level with the 1 GB one? So, what is the difference between the 512 MB and 1 GB (of course except the obvious one)?

Thanks for your replies.

  1. From your example, I take it Athlon II X2 is the HD 5670 and the RAM is the memory of the GPU, an Athlon II X2 with 8GB RAM is overkill. Is this the same case with HD 5670 1 GB? So 512 MB version really does performs as well as 1 GB?

    And yes, you're right, I dont quite understand about GPUs well enough.
