Gt430 vs GT520 vs HD5670
also considering HD 6570

system is
Core2Duo 2.93ghz
4gb ram DDR2-800

I am leaning towards the HD 5670
but am confused if the other cards
can match up to it at a cheaper price

any help would be appreciated

Em termos de desempenho, sem duvida a 5670 é a melhor escolha!
Melhor mesmo era ir pra 6670 se não for muito mais caro.

A GT430 é melhor do que a GT520. GT520=HD6450! :non:

The gt520 only has 48 shaders and is a very basic card over all. The GT430 has twice the shaders but isn't a great card for gaming ect. 5670 is a solid card but price is high. The 6570 is worth it but I have not kept up to date about ati in this price segment.

those two (hd5670 or 6570) I have had trouble deciding
both are same price on US Newegg
the Sapphire HD5670 is 512mb GDDDR5 with nice design
the HD 6570 is 1gb DDR3

I dont think the 1gb makes much of a difference
and I like the GDDR5 of the HD5670 (should be able to get great memory OC)

I do like the HD6570 because it is newer (features) with about 40 more stream processors

I go to make sure that the HD 6570 is NOT PCI_E 2.1
I know 2.0 cards work in my tower
I am not sure if 2.1 do

5670 hands down as it has twice the memory bandwidth despite having half the vram capacity. GDDR5 is twice the performance of GDDR3 at any clock rate.

5670 or there is also a 5750 low profile.

Thanks Crowe
add another one to my confusion :) 
I will look into the 5750 specs
Originally I wanted the HD5670 mainly due to Toms Video card of the month
roundups from a few months ago
but then I saw the other ones

@nforce4max - that is what I was thinking also

Does 5750 require 6pin?

Yes, it requires one six pin connector.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/home-theater-pc-hal... heres some info about the 5750 low profile. its the best low profile card you can get. power draw is up near 250 watts though (with an athlonIIx4, maybe a core 2 duo would use a little less power.)



That is too much power for my Dell 280w
That is a shame

I will go with the HD 5670 for now because of performance vs power usage vs price
it looks like the best choice

In the future I will look into upgrading PSU
but for now I want to wait

Find out the price of the 6670 first ... Here in Portugal, through "PIXMANIA" the 6670 is cheaper than 5670 ... and has much more performance. PCI-Ex 2.0 also gives 2.1. I think 2.1 is faster, but the same slot, of course!

Take a look...it's True! (Price in EUROS - 1 EUR= ~1,3 USD)
5670 512MB DDR5 HM http://www.pixmania.com/pt/pt/4900997/art/sapphire-tech...
5670 512MB DDR5 http://www.pixmania.com/pt/pt/4642692/art/sapphire-tech...
5670 512MB DDR5 http://www.pixmania.com/pt/pt/4642693/art/sapphire-tech...
(3 equal cards, three different prices!...WTF??? :wahoo:  )

...and 6670 512MB DDR5 http://www.pixmania.com/pt/pt/9739243/art/sapphire-tech...

See the diference... :pfff: 
http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-6670-review/3 (Also see the following pages)
(The 6670 is cheaper?? WTF x2!??)
And have the same performance as 5750 and GTS250! More... and doesn't need a power connector as the others (PCI-Ex 6 pin)

So... If 6670 is more expensive where you live, a big difference, 5670 is the best choice for you! 1 GB or 512MB makes no difference in performance. is the same thins for most games or benchmarks, only a few games need lots of memory like GTA IV for example. You can see this in any review with a 6950 1GB and 2 GB 6950 ... usually the 1 GB card wins by 1 fps ... :p 
what matters is speed. DDR5 is twice the DDR3 as well as 128 bits is doubled to 64, in which case, both are reflected in the performance of memory, Bits and DDR RAM, and both has 128 bits and are DDR5! It's Excellent for this price of cards!

The HD6670 is a good idea but
No low profile cards are available yet
also price point in USA is @$30 higher
I want to get a card this month
and as you said the HD5670 at $75 USD is
the best choice

I hope my poor Espanol did not offend you :)

pcie 2.1 is not any faster than 2.0 and is irrelevant as the card would not use all of the bandwidth on even a pcie 1 slot.

that aside ., i agree the 5670 is the best choice for you.

pci-e is like rdram most of the bandwidth is wasted or lost due to high latency.

I was avoiding PCI-e 2.1 do to compatibility issus
I have a 1.1 slot so 2.0 is the highest I can go
without running into problems

You do realise that a DDR5 card is not necessary better than a DDR3 one,don't you?It mostly depends on the card's graphic engine,and if you take a look at some reviews(like this one http://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Hardware/Reviews/amd_... ,let's say)you'll see that hd6570 and hd5670 have more likely the same performance overall.

So,if I were you,I would go for the hd6570,given the fact that it has double the amount of memory and,on top of that,it's the newer card.
