Graphic card choice

Hi, I'm buying a new desktop pc but not sure which the best graphics card is for watching internet streamed films and sport. The processor is an i5-2500K and the graphics card either ATI Radeon HD 6670 GDDR3 2GB or Nvidia Geforce GTX 550Ti GDDR5 1GB?

  1. The 550ti is more powerful so if you plan on gaming go for that card. If your just watching videos the 6670 might be the more cost friendly option.
  2. I know this is not your question, but if you're not gaming, the 2500k is way overkill. Get a regular core i5-2500 or 2400 (or 3450, or whatever; you don't need something with a -k on it). Or even an i3. As for the video card, either option is fine if you're watching streamed content; just get whichever one is cheaper.
  3. i don't use Intel 3000 on board graphics but.......... wouldn't that be enough to stream and watch movies without having the cost of a video card ?
  4. Ha, good point. You could easily get by with HD3000, or an IB with HD4000 if you were feeling crazy. Or a Llano for that matter.
