Hi,

I'm trying to select which one would best perform considering the system I have.
So, here's the two:

Gigabyte HD 5670 1gb ddr3 128bit (GV-R567D3-1GI) VS. SAPPHIRE HD 5670 1GB DDR3

My System:
CPU: Athon II x3 unlocked to Phenom II X4
RAM: 2gb RAM DDR3
MOBO: Asrock N68-S UCC (which I think is ddr3 as well)
Monitor: 16" LG LED monitor (currently, planning to updrage)


Their difference here in our Country is only $6

Which one is the way to go?

Considerations:

1. Compatibily and performance
2. Price (6$ difference)
3. Compatibitly of my MOBO
4. Power
5. temperature

If one of the cards is DDR5, definitely go for that one, it will be much faster than the DDR3 model.

^+1, otherwise just go for the cheapest if the clock frequency and ram specs are the same. Power/temp will be pretty much the same, those cards dont produce much heat or use much power. Compatability will be the same.
