  1. 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
  2. "rather blah cards" ??? :lol:
  3. ^^ What he says. 7750.
  4. I was a hardcore gamer in college but now i have no time so casual gaming....mostly dota 2 and lol....will be playing ac3,bf3 etc but no need of super high resolutions will 6670 do the job?
  5. What resolution you using?
    Power supply?
    CPU?

    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.
  8. 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

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161395

    But for very little more

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121472

    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?

    Hi
    I AM not looking to upgrade
    My 9600gt is dead and my motherboard don't have in built graphics so no video output and i need a new card that needs to do what 9600gt did for a affordable price
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

    Hi
    Difference between 1gb and 2gb isonly 8$ would you still recommend the 1gb?

    Hi
    Yeah i need a card that does what 9600gt did
    Beyond this price range i should wait for my nxt months pay but till then i will not be able to use my comp.....so no other option than buy this
  16. I use a Intel dp55wb mother board and will raedon 6670 support this?
  17. Yes, your MB is fine. I would still get the 1gb, you wont use the 2.
  18. I can get the 1gb ddr3 sapphire for 5.1k and why wouldn't you you recommend the 2gb ddr3?its only 6$more
  19. 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 .
  20. That makes sense

    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-6670-1-gb-ddr3-graphics-card/p/itmd4f6shhvfzhum?pid=GRCD4F6RWVCTDGQW)its a pcie 2.1 but i am using Intel Dp55wb( http://ark.intel.com/products/41162/Intel-Desktop-Board-DP55WB) 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)
Ask a new question
