or this one
hd 5670

they both are low-pro low power draw

I am not sure if the hd 6570 needs an external power connector
anybody know?

system spec
Core2Duo @ 2.93ghz
4gb ram
Dell 280w PSU continuous output equal to about 350-400w max output

If the 6670 doesn't need an external power connector, the 6570 shouldn't.

Easy choice though, get the 6570.

Thank you for quick reply :) 
does the 6570 blow away the HD5670 or is only marginally better?
I was set on the 5670 but then I saw the 6570
I do like the Gddr5 of the 5670 and higher clock speeds
I used GPU review to do a side by side match up and
it was close

If anybody has link to game benches between the two that would be great

I can only find benchmarks for the 5670, but not for the 6570. However, based on the 6670's results, I can safely say that the 6570 would probably be about 10% faster.

Thank you very much
It is just I have been taught to go with the better memory
which is the GDDR5 in the HD5670
I will have to really do my own research and read reviews on the 6570
it is definitley one to consider
I like the 6570 since it is newer tech with some newer features
Thanks for your help borisof007 :)
