6670is the better of the two but both are rather blah cards

Save another 20-30 and get a 7750 or 6770

Nvidia does not have anything worthwhile at that price range even at the price range I suggested

Like others say, the 7750 is just an all around winner. For what little you pay, you get 1080p gaming from mid-high at 30-50 FPS.

I don't really see an upgrade in the cards you suggested.
The 6670 with 2gb of ddr3 is a waste even a cheaper 1gb card is a better perfromer
and the Gt 630 is a turd in the gaming world and is likely a noticeable downgrade .

otherwise buy something used with a little more power 8800gts or 250 GTS or possibly a 460 GTX. On the AMD side 50 bucks is a good price for a 5770 and you should be able to find something like that locally. BUT don't buy a used 460 from evga or palit they had memory issues due to heat and lack of heat spreaders on the mem systems.

if new is the only way

or

Cheap and a big upgrade

But for very little more

and get a much better experience and a silent operator

Wow options under 100 are much better in canada

Periods... how do they work ?

Hi
7750 is 25$ more but when converted to my currency its 2.3k more....so i AM really in a tight budget
I can get 6670 for 5.4k but 7750 is 7.8k including all taxes
So rite now can't afford it....
Also i AM using dp55wb Intel mother board will it support hd6670?

Get the 6670 of the two but try to find one with only 1GB of mem the reset is a waste and actually slows the card down., very little but it costs more.

If you have to get a card, get the 6670. A 7750 or even a 6750 would be better.
Seems you need a card now and can only spend so much.

THe card isn't powerful enough to address all that memory and when it does that causes latency. We are talking franctions of seconds but at the same time why pay more for a slower card that can not practically use all that ram anyway.

Games won't benefit in any way .

Hi nestham
I have one more doubt
I am planning to buy sapphire Raedon hd6670 1gb ddr3 graphic card( http://www.flipkart.com/sapphire-amd-ati-radeon-hd-6670...)its a pcie 2.1 but i am using Intel Dp55wb( http://ark.intel.com/products/41162/Intel-Desktop-Board...) which supports only 2.0 ...i know that pcie is backward and forward compatible but i have a doubt about power supply as pci 2.1 can supply more power via itself instead of using extra connectors so does it mean that when i put the card in my mother board which is pcie 2.0 can it power the card(as i didn't see any other extra power connectors mentioned in the card)
