"Best" graphics card around the $100 price point.

I am building an ultra budget PC built with the main goal of playing most games at 720P.
Looking over the video cards that fit the overall budget for this PC I wanted to see opinions from members here.
Current cards in the running are: 6670 DDR5, 6770, and a 7750. All are about $100 or less.

I have no problem waiting on a deal within the next 1-2 months, as well.
One other thing, how much of a difference does DDR3 make in a 6670?
I hear some reports that going to DDR5 on that card yields much better results than DDR3.

7750. No doubt.

HD 7750 is better out of all, less money more performance. It is newer better overclocking abilities, runs cooler.

HD 6770 performs as good as HD 7750 if you have a 6-pin connector available on your graphics card. Get it over HD 7750 if it's cheaper.

they write an article every single month "best graphics card for the money"

What was wrong with reading that article?

You realize though at the low point, they start splitting straws about $5 or 5% on this or that,
which you can make up just through tax/shipping availability or just by better spending your time on something else.

7750 for sure. GDDR5 memory is much faster than DDR3, and would be a necessity at that price point.

I have read those articles numerous times. They don't mention if it is a DDR3 or DDR5 6670, and I also wanted to see what users thought.

HD 7750... Its better than the others you mentioned and consumes less power due to the smaller manufacturing process.

Cool.

From what I have seen, the 7750 should be able to handle games at quite nicely at 720P.
My goal for this budget build is max details settings, 720P, 16X AF, and little to no AA.
Do you think the 7750 will be able to handle that with 30FPS?

If a deal on the 6770 pops up, I'll jump on it.
It is really up to what card has a good rebate deal on it right now.

If no deal pops up, then the 7750 it is then.
