Help me choose my GFX card!

Hi I'm upgrading from my Radeon 5450 after my terrible experiences with Nvidia 9800GT(worst drivers EVER)
So here are my options:

  1. What do you want to use this GFX card for?
    How much is your budget?
    What are your current full system specs?
  2. none of those cards would be a match for the 9800gt. However, if you want to get a hd6670, the get the DDR5 version since it has much higher memory bandwidth.

  3. AMD HD 6670 is the best choice-

    Most important information is wattage of your PSU. You might need to open your case for this.

    The HD6670 is the best but you should rather go one better to get some more life out of it. HD7750 is a great card that runs on very little power.

    I just bought this to run the 9800 Gt but that didn't go so well so I'm going to be using it for a AMD instead :
    Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply

    Ok considering you have a decent PSU.

    Get this or one better HD6770 if you have some more cash.

    Are you using a normal case or something from Acer or HP or any other type of case? Can you paste a photo. The card is standard length. It is just abit broad, but that is rarely an issue.
