More about which graphics card dollars
  1. The 6670 is good if you are on a super tight budget.

    Where are you buying? That would help me compare prices
  2. my budget is now 7000 rupees , i.e 135 dollars...I'm buying from the country India ... on the sites: www.snapdeal.com or www.ebay.in
  3. How about this. It should do better than the 6670.

    Hope this helps
  4. if i was you i would save up a bit more and get Sapphire HD7750 1GB DDR5 Rs 7869
  5. Not possible dude/// i want it now, cuz i have been using 7300gs 256mb with mw3, mw2, mw1, etc... for 6 years :(( I want something nice yaar... my budget is 7000
  6. how about the 6750? ^ I was also going to recommend a 7750 hehe. but the 6750 and 7750 are very close in performance.
  7. oh sorry I was looking at the DDR3 version on ebay lol... that card is 800r over budget
  8. unless you aren't bothered going 800 rupees ($15) over budget?

    here's the one I found > http://www.ebay.in/itm/ATI-RADEON-HD6750-1GB-DDR5-HDMI-PCI-E-CARD-HIS-/110811408150?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash=item19ccdfe716
  9. i agree a 6750 would be a good choice for that budget you should be able to run any game.
  10. what about the 5750? isn't it basically the same card as a 6750? apart from having HDMI 1.3 vs HDMI 1.4 on the 6750?
  11. Yeah, if your budget is a strict 7000r, then 6670, if you can stretch a little, then go with the 6750.
  12. price oof 6750 1gb ddr5 is more than 7000 :((
  13. not sure about this card http://www.ebay.in/itm/XFX-ATI-Radeon-HD-5750-1GB-DDR5-DirectX-11-Graphic-Card-/271071818266?pt=IN_Desktop_PCs&hash=item3f1d23b21a

    The 5750 should be the same but the info on that card is a little vague.

    E.g Memory clock 1150mhz (4.6Gbps effective)... mistake? the reference clock is 2300mhz (4600mhz effective)... I know many GDDR5 are accidentally labeled as there input clocks which is a 1>2 ratio (1150>2300) and then effective is calculated with from DDR x2
  14. So tell me, which shall i buy under 7000 ( 135 dollars )... i have to order right now from interent... ..tnx
  15. Check out the guys feedback and see if you can find any previous sales of the card. His feedback is 100%... Good luck!
  16. You have got a 6pin power connector on your 450 watt PSU to connect the GPU?
  17. Well if you trust ebay and the buyer I'd personally get this card http://www.ebay.in/itm/XFX-ATI-Radeon-HD-5750-1GB-DDR5-DirectX-11-Graphic-Card-/271071818266?pt=IN_Desktop_PCs&hash=item3f1d23b21a

    I checked it out and the HD-575X-ZMF3 seems to be upto spec. You may not get much of an overclocking headroom but this can play most games med-high settings.
    A reviewer on newegg said his temps are 30-50c which is good.
  18. Which shall i buy: HD 6670 1GB DDR5 or HD 5750 1GB DDR5

    I saw on youtube that 5750 can play all games on mid-high settings and 6670 doesn't do that well i think. I wanna play games like: black ops, arkham city, gta 4, future soldier, metro 2033, crysis 2, ALAN WAKE (my fav :) ) max payne 3 ( my bro's fav :P )

    I have motherboard P5KPL AM/PS of asus
  19. Also, these are the specs of HD6670 1GB DDR5:
    Output ::1 x Dual-Link DVI, 1 x HDMI (with 3D), 1 x DisplayPort, DisplayPort 1.2
    GPU :: 800 MHz Core Clock, 40 nm Chip, 480 x Stream Processors
    Memory :: 1024 MB Size, 128 -bit GDDR5, 4000 MHz Effective
    Dimension :: 180(L)x130(W)x50(H) mm Size

    These are the specs of HD 5750 1GB DDR5:

    Core Clock :: 700MHz
    Stream Processors :: 720 Stream Processors

    Memory
    Effective Memory Clock :: 1150MHz (4.6Gbps)
    Memory Size :: 1GB
    Memory Interface :: 128-bit
    Memory Type ::GDDR5


    DirectX ::DirectX 11
    OpenGL :: OpenGL 3.2


    which one do u think is best? I will order it by tomorrow morning, so please tell me which is suitable for my needs
  20. The 5750 is much better than a 6670. I'd wager that's what you'll be wanting. (Also I think it's clever they priced the 5750 at 5750)
  21. Good things come to those who wait

    Perhaps I don't fully understand your situation, but if you have run 6 years on a crappy card, why not save up a little extra to get the most value from your money. A 7750 or a 6750 will perform quite a bit better than a 6670 for not very much more money; if you can save up the extra without going nuts, it's probably in your best interest.
  22. i think buying this card is good, what say ? : http://www.ebay.in/itm/XFX-ATI-Radeon-HD-5750-1GB-DDR5-DirectX-11-Graphic-Card-/271071818266?pt=IN_Desktop_PCs&hash=item3f1d23b21a#ht_2712wt_732

    Thanks 4 ur help... TC// if there is better suggestion for under 6000 rupees, please post it fast!
  23. That's a pretty good deal, I've bought oof ebay in the past for hardware (in the UK) and personally I've never had a problem.

    Here is another site that I commonly use to get a quick reference of graphics cards http://www.gpureview.com/show_cards.php?card1=654&card2=616

    the GPU is actually around the same performance as my GTS 450 (apart from my 140mhz core overclock but the memory is a little faster then my GTS 450s)
    My GTS450 can handle allot of the stuff I do (Skyrim on ultra at 40-60fps, Crysis at 30-40fps highest detail.. no AA, Guild wars 2 highest settings = 30-50fps)
    If the HD 5750 performs anywhere near my GTS 450 I think you'll be happy (Note that I have an intel quad core i5 2400 and 8gb of 1600mhz memory)

    Hope this helps.
  24. Nice find. I would get that for the price and be done.
  25. i saw that HD 5750 1gb ddr5 is pciex 2.1 x16 while my motherboard ASUS P5KPL AM/PS is pcie x16. Will the HD 5750 work in my pc? also, it said it requires 6 Pin connector. will it work without it? and what is its price? i hope it is not very high priced :( please reply soon thanks
  26. My psu has 1 4pin cable coming out.. can i convert it into 6 pin and play games? :D
  27. No, or if you did convert it, it may not be able to regulate and supply correctly. I would get a new PSU or choose a card that needs only 4 pin.
  28. Those are good options, however, I am not sure those prices are available where the card is being bought and shipping may increase that price. Also, some of those are above $116 (7000r). What do you think meghrajbaria?
  29. If I was you I'd save up a little more money and get the 7750 since you don't have a 6pin connector... you won't regret it.

    I found the 7750 on ebay india for 7800r, Just wait and save.
    Good things come to thoughs with patience :D.
  30. Not sure about your economic situation but 800r ($15) isn't much on top of 7000r ($115) and it will give you a huge performance boost compaired to the next option down.
  31. Good news, i upgraded my pc to:
    AMD BULLDOZER F4100 3.60Ghz
    8 GIGS OF RAM 1600Mhz DDR3
    550w PSU Iball ( maybe i will get the coolermaster on )

    It does have a 6+2pin connector. So, which graphics card is good for me now ?
  32. Best answer
    I can't tell if you already bought your components or not (I'm going to assume you didn't, since it sounds like you haven't settled on a PSU)

    Coolermaster isn't really a good PSU maker; IBall is unknown to me, I would expect it to also be pretty bad, but it maybe just an international brand. If you can get seasonic, Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, or XFX, those are all good brands. (Refer to this list http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx or individual PSU reviews before you buy other brands)

    A good 550W will run any single graphics card, so it's up to your budget (though I can't say for sure if you are getting a good PSU). Nvidia's 670 is a good high end card, otherwise I think AMD holds the better midrange gaming cards this gen (7850, 7870, 7950), I haven't checked out the 550ti yet though (edit: A quick look at toms benches puts a bit ahead of the 7770, for a bit more, so it's a good buy between the 7770 and 7850 here in the states). Also, you could refer to this for guidance: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-4.html

    As far as your choice in CPU, if you mostly just game, you would be better served with an i3/i5/Phenom2 depending on your budget. The AMD FX chips aren't that great, Phenom2 965BE is a good budget CPU for AMD, otherwise go intel (don't look at i7 for gaming).
