Well as I said, it's not bad but not amazing either. I like to be safe, and have a margin of approx 50-100W higher PSU over what I need. If you're sticking with the PSU, I'd go for a 5670. Very tolerant on power supplies, gives decent performance (about the same as the Nvidia options). All round, not bad at all.

nvidia really doesn't hav an answer to the 5670 thats dx11 compatable

they have a hole
gurrently it goes

5550 (ddr3)< 430< 5550(ddr5) < 5570 < 5650 < <5670 < 5750 <450<5770

ther price gets close in there but there's definatly a price gap to fill between the 430 and the 450 dx11 market that nvidia has nothign to offer in ... one might however argue they don't want to spend the resources on goign after this market as its the 100 even mark with the 430 falling in the 75ish and the 450 falling into the 125ish

point being if he wants dx11 in the price range of 100 bucks nvidia isn't for him :D 

and the 9800 does compete with the 5670 but i'd take the 5670 due to it being mroe energy efficient and edging it out in performance, the dx11 is just an added bonus

the 1 gig vs 512 meg the 1 gig will preform a tiny bit better in a handful of title usually ones with larger draw distances... however in general you will not see a difference so unless its the same price or within 5 bucks of the 512 meg i wouldn't go for the 1 gig

At the resolution the op is at, his current card is probably great. DX11 only comes into play if the game supports dx11 correct. The op might be better off going to a 64 bit OS and getting a ram upgrade.

no,but i want directx11 to be in my pc,because its future and having it will save my money.so that i wont have to spend next year,and then when windows 8 will be coming out in 2012,i will buy another same standard gpu with directx12,so the game here is just that i want to run games in directx11,the ones who support it.and then 1 more thing is that i am not looking for an upgrade,i just want to buy the same standard gpu like my hd 3870 and i think hd 5670 gddr5 is that card.what you all say?

Honestly dude, I would almost consider staying where you are. How many games are really going to be coded for DX11? A lot of the developers finally just got dx10 down I think.

whoever recommend 5670 is just ignorant of these hardware spec...

if you want to get card, get 5750 or above because under that line mostly are garbage.

tell me this....can you play dx 11 on 5670 with "reasonable" setting with "acceptable" frame rate? now dx 11's bottom line is 68xx and 460 and anything below it will be handicap by the hardware spec. not even 5750 can handle dx 11 what makes you think 5670 can take the advantage? again that is just be fanboism that's all.

8800gt and 9800gt will be much nicer choice over 5670 unless you have power supply issue otherwise go for it. if you want dx 11 then you'd have to get 5770 or above to run dx 11 game in minimum setting. 5670 is just like 8400gs in old day with also feature dx10 but the performance was a joke...

"DO DX11 FINE ON 1024 X 768,WITH MEDIUM TO HIGH SETTINGS"

he's not even looking for max settings just dx11m, and medium-high settings at a low res... the 5670 can do that. we are answering based on his budget and wat is available. is nvidia had a dx11 card that could do this in his price range we could talk abotu that... btu guess what there is not one the 440 is an oem only option so until it makes a market debut (which it probably never will) then his onyl good option is(and his question) was between 2 lower performing non dx11 cards (8800GT OR 9800GT) and a better performing dx11 card (5670)

5670 can run dx11 just fine at low resolutions liek yours 1024 X 768, you just can't do it at resolutions much higher than that. ie if you upgraded your monitor you woudl have to lower settings farther... btu you'd still out perform the 8800gt

it support dx11 doesn't mean it can actually run dx 11 in medium/high setting with acceptable frame rate even at resolution like 1024x768 or 800x600.

again if you want dx 11 go for 5770/gts450 or else stick with 8800gt and dont even think about dx 11. 5670 is just a low end garbage card just like 8600gt when it came out to be "dx10 certified" but real time performance proved to be a joke. 5670 just like that.

gts450 and 5670 aint in the same level card. and starcraft/dirt2 aint native dx11 game.

5670 512mb can only run dx11 mode under 800x600 with "everything" disable and all setting "lowest" with frame rate of 5fps.....not even mighty gtx 480 can run over 60fps when everything enable and highest setting under 1024x768 what makes you think 5670 can do any good? trolled goods

can you back this up? because you are the one that have no idea wtf you're talking about.

more rop/tmu = faster frame rate.

higher resolution = ram size

this has nothing to do with "5670 >8800gt". you're compare a 1gb 5670 against 8800gt 512mb and called it a win? wow

also agreed on the 8600 .. i had a 8500gt in college because its all i could afford and has to lower evey game including WoW to 800x600
