Here's my system right now:

M59 Case
400w quality 80 plus antec psu
A8-3870k CPU
ASUS F1A55-M LE - FM1 Mobo
160GB hard drive
8GB ram kingston hyper x
I was planning on getting a 6670 to hybrid crossfire with the onboard gpu. I want to try and get the best gpu I can get for this system and this system only. Is 6670 the best or is there something better, I don't mind if it can't crossfire with the onboard gpu, just if it's better than 6670+onboard 6550d. Also make sure my 400w psu can handle it.

I wanted to spend like 50-60 for the 6670 but I could spend more for something under 100. The graphics card has to work with 400w psu though.


Don't...

I found a 7750 form $109 and you should be ok with it if you have a 400watt psu. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you won't spend that much I think you should hold off on your purchase and buy something that will actually last.

If you want go for the 6670 but im gonna tell you straight up it is a weak card!

How good is the 7750 compared to the 6670? Also I'm gonna crossfire the 6670 with the 6550d. And are you sure the 7750 will work with my 400w psu? Some people on the forum said my 400w psu is barely enough for the 6670.

Your entire rig will only use around 200w MAX without the the 6670, so you should be perfectly fine as the HD7750 uses very little power, even less than the 6670!

Though if you get the 6670, you could do Dual Graphics which is always a nice option IMO.

So does 7750 perform waaay better than 6670+6550d? Or is it just a little. I only have 150$ on my paypal right now but I don't plan to spend all of it.

What are some examples of what games the 7750 can run and what fps?

A 7750 could potentially run Battlefield 3 on Low+Medium settings..it's not a very powerful card by any means, it just gets the job done :lol:  Though all this would depend on your monitor resolution. Can you tell us what it is? (Sorry if you said this already, I must have missed it)

As for performance, I'm not too sure. a 6670+6550D = HD6690D which I have no clue about on performance...

My monitor is 1440x900

I heard someone on tomshardware said the 6670+6550d performs close to the 6770 and I looked on newegg and it's about 100 dollars just like the 7750 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm not sure how reliable these benches are, but it says that a 6690D is just a little slower than an HD5750.

http://www.hwcompare.com/11800/radeon-hd-5750-1gb-vs-ra...

Personally I would grab the 7750.

http://www.hwcompare.com/11774/radeon-hd-6770-1gb-vs-ra...

However, I'm sure your PSU can handle a HD6770 so I would go for it if it's to your liking. It'll perform very well at your resolution as well.

So the 7750 is just a little bit better for an extra 50 bucks? I think I'm going with the 6670.

I heard someone said that the dual graphics will only be good if your playing dx11 games but if you play something dx10 or dx9 then the speed will only be the same as 6670.

I'm not too positive, but I can see how this can be plausible. Though you won't be maxing out any recent titles even if you do get extra performance with DX11, that's for sure.

But the 7750 is just a tiny bit better for 2x more money, I don't think it's worth it.

6770 would definitely be a reasonable upgrade over your current GPU AND the 7750/6670.
http://www.hwcompare.com/11774/radeon-hd-6770-1gb-vs-ra...

The HD7750 is the same price as the HD6770 at the moment, so I don't see too much of a problem.

I doubt your PSU will have too much of a problem handling this card either, so if you can afford it, I would definitely recommend it.

While we're on the subject.... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... This would be a very reasonable option for you as well. Performs better than all options listed before, and consumes less power = lower strain on your PSU (not too concerned about this though)

7770 isn't too expensive either, generally around the same price as the 6770. http://www.hwcompare.com/11927/radeon-hd-6770-1gb-vs-ra...

My psu can really handle it? It takes like 2x more power supply though? So right now I'm leaning more towards the 6670+6550d because I want to make use of the onboard graphics and not just throw it away. How does the 6670+6550d compare to the 6770 or the 7770. Is it much much better? I don't have a lot of money to spend right now so I'm trying to get the best bang for my buck.

Performance wise, the 6770 and 7770 will most likely perform better than the 6550D+6670 combination.

However, I understand what you're saying, and I don't think you'll have any troubles if you end up going with the HD6670.

On a side note, the power consumption on the 6770 and 7770 varies from 80-100 watts. Your current rig at the moment will pull around 100-150w at full load. Let's say you went with the 6770 (100w). Full system load would be 200-250w, 300w at most, which leaves you ~100w for your PSU to breathe. So they will definitely be fine with your PSU.

Ok thanks sooo much! I think I'll go with the 6670 :)  if I go with other ones, I feel like the onboard 6550d is going to waste :p
