what should be a better option between

4850 512mb ddr3 vs 5670 512mb ddr5 in performance, feature, noice and power comsumption.

CPU -2.8ghz c2d
RAM- 2 GB
HDD - 500 GH
MB - G31
Monitor - 1366 * 765 (will probably upgrade to 1920 * 1080 in near future)

more concern for gaming and normal daily use.
no professional work.
thanks

What is your budget and PSU??

They are pretty close in performance. The 5670 uses less power.

If you are going to a 1080p monitor, I would suggest you consider a 5770 or something like it, depending on your budget.

The 5750 is more equivalent to the 4850, at 1366x765 the 4850 or the 5670 will both do quite well, at 1920x1080 the 4850 will do a fair amount better, but if you are looking to play games that make use of DX 11 the 5670 would let you do it at the lower resolution.

The 4850 is faster than the 5670, however the 5670 supports dx11, the 4850 does not. Also the 4850 requires an 6pin power cable while the 5670 does not. Meaning the 5670 uses less power.

The successor TO the 4850 would be the 5750, which has recently been rebranded to the 6750.

So if you don't really care about dx11, the 4850 will be faster.

the reason i consider between 4850 and 5670 is that i can get used 4850 at usd 70.
my psu already have 6 pin connection so i think it can handle 4850.
by the way, which one is better between 5770 and 6750.

thanks

the people above aren't giving you a accurate picture.THE 4850 is SIGNIFICANTLY MORE POWERFUL.It is 34% faster than 5670.Here is their performance summary:

HD 5770 is more powerful than the HD 6750. But i heard there's a crash issue fixed in the HD6XXX series that's why they renamed.

I am guess your running on windows xp today if not tomorrow you have to switch to windows 7 .(mostly for direct x support ) so why not go with directx11 card .Your system will bottleneck if u go with 4850 instead if u choose 5670 this card will even help u run windows 7 run better .

i'm using win7 home
i know win 7 support DX 11 but i think it's just need for DX 11 games.
and 5670 is not fast enough for DX 11.
so i think it's not he deciding factor for that.

Do you have any idea what you are saying.The 5670 is not a gaming card.It is a card made specifically for users that have a low end computer with a weak psu.It was meant to replace the amd 4670.The amd 4850 is easily faster than both and competes with a nvidia 8800 GTX,GTS 450.It also does exceptionally well till 1680X1050.Besides dx 11 requires a 5770 as minimum and in any case there are only 15 games as of now which support it.Take a look at crysis.Even at dx 9 it destroys dx 11 games visually.And as for the 5670 giving better experience on windows 7,thats bullshit.On the contrary the 4850 will give a better experience because since its faster the performance impact of windows aero will be less felt on 4850 than 5670.

between HD 4850 and HD 5670, go with HD 4850 for performance. Get the 1ghz version as if u gonna use 1920x1080 resolution.

Good Gaming not only depends on your graphic card but good cpu is also important .Sm games ex:\GTA4 can take advantage of all 4 cores !but ur running on c2d with just 2gigs of ram. (when windows 7 alone needs 1gig of ram).

So spending much on your c2d machine will be useless .

One of my friend has !5 750 and 9400gt 1gb ddr2 gpu . He plays nfs hot pursuit , nfs shift smoothly . nw u just cant do that even if u go with 4850. Ur cpu will bottleneck.

Moreover i dont think u wanna use windows xp with your 19 inch moniter 5670 will give you better windows 7 experience it has open cl, direct compute .

He only ask between HD 4850 and HD 5670 for gaming and normal daily use. The c2d @ 2.8 its enough for the HD 4850 to shine through.

so i assume 4850 is better for gaming
and 5670 win on power comsumption and normal daily use.

i'll upgrade to 4 gb RAM as i get the card.
so my E7400 C2D is enough for the either 4850 or 5670?

plz suggest me.
