Which would be more beneficial to me? Tags: Graphics Cards Processors ATI Graphics Last response: January 7, 2012 11:53 PM in Graphics & Displays Share anitechno January 7, 2012 5:42:30 PM I'm looking to upgrade my CPU/GPU. Currently I'm using a Intel Pentium E5400 (dual core @ 2.7ghz) with an ATI 6670 in 1080p (not good I know). Would you recommend that I go for a quad core processor with an ati 6770 or just go for a better card and get a 6870 with my old processor? More about : beneficial Sunius a c 289 U Graphics card January 7, 2012 6:08:28 PM I'd get a quad core. 6870 isn't THAT much more powerful than 6670. And I bet you recently upgraded it too. Getting another 6670 could be an option as well if you're willing to crossfire. k1114 a c 106 U Graphics card January 7, 2012 6:34:46 PM If this is for more fps in games then go with a better gpu. The e5400 should be fine with the 6870. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/HD_6670/22.html 6870 is 130% better than the 6670.
