Sapphire HD 4670 or EN8600GT

Hey

So my current GPU is a Radeon HD 4350 however I think it should be replaced. I can get either a Sapphire HD 4670 or EN8600GT since I cannot afford a better one.

At the moment Im using a g31m-es2l motherboard with 2x2GB 800mhz 6-6-6-18 Kingston and a Celeron E3400 running at 200mhz x11 (planning on OCing it to around 3.5ghz once I get some better cooling) with a FSB:RAM ratio of 1:2.

Please bear in mind that this is my first attempt at overclocking and,despite being a gamer,I dont really want to play Crysis 2 at top settings

Any replies are appreciated

  1. id say go with the hd 4670 because as far as i can tell there pretty much the same exept the hd 4670 has next to 4 time the memory of the other card your looking at.
  2. The HD4670 is what I would get and it is a lot more powerful than a HD4350.
  3. Thanks for the input guys.
    Another question: will the HD4670 run with my current motherboard? The HD4670 is interface is PCI-E 2.0 x16.
    Also should I except a big difference in performance? My current GPU is a EAH 4350
  4. yeah it should work with your motherboard but in terms of increase in preformance im not so sure it could be alot or it could be a little but it will improve
  5. The hd4670 has a different GPU onboard and is a big upgrade from HD4350 which performs little better than HD3450 http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/HIS/HD_4670_IceQ_Turbo/26.html
  6. 8600GT is not a good card. At 4670 would perform about where a 9600GT or 8800GT is at.
  7. Thank you for the useful replies.
    One last question: would it be good to overclock the HD4670? Or would it not make a difference since it is already a half decent card?
