I'm trying to figure out what I should go with: Asus 6670 GDDR5, XFX 5570 GDDR2 (Or is it GDDR3?), or MSI R5670 GDDR5?

My Rig:

Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) 9750 Quad-Core

CPU Speed: 2.4 GHz

RAM: 8GB DDR2

OS: Windows 7

DirectX: 11.0

Sound Card: High Definition Audio Device

Power Supply: 600

Graphics Card: XFX ATI Radeon HD 4650 1GB GDRR2

These are the games I would like to play on my PC.

Dragon Age II

Bulletstorm

Medal of Honor

StarCraft II

Guild Wars 2

Battlefield 3

The Witcher 2

Rage

F.E.A.R. 3

Thanks in advance for the help and advice guys. ^_^

The 6670 is the best card out of all of those you listed. The 5670 is slightly slower than the 6670. The 5570 is the slowest card, and I would only recommend that card only if you have a very, very weak power supply (something like 250 Watts) What resolution are you going to be playing at? If you are playing at a lower resolution like 1280x1024, the 6670 will perform well in most of these titles, though you will probably have to use reduced details on Battlefield 3 and Witcher 2. If you are playing at a higher resolution, like 1920x1080, you will probably have to run most of those games at reduced detail settings to get an acceptable framerate, especially Witcher 2 and Battlefield 3.

If you are playing at a higher resolution, you may want to look at something higher than the 6670. Though I can't make any recommendations without knowing more about your power supply (make, model, how many amps on the +12V rail). Your CPU is also rather slow, so a lot of the higher end cards would likely get bottlenecked by your CPU, especially in the more CPU heavy titles (BF3, StarCraft II).
