I think the 6670 is faster than the 6570 however neither of those will give you ultra settings on skyrim. Maybe a 6750 or a 6770 would apache_lives a b U Graphics card June 1, 2012 1:03:21 PM generic 500w psu blaarrrgg wouldn't trust that thing at all msi motherboard.... yuck phenom 9500... at least its a quad.. hope your running windows 7 64 Related resources best graphics card to get for 1024x768 res - Forum Good GPU for gaming at 1024x768 resolution - Forum Need best GPU for 1024x768 - Forum Best GPU to max all games at 1600x900 res . - Forum Best GPU for Skyrim ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
