Hi Everyone,
I am building a new pc(excluding monitor and os) for around 500$ for gaming.

i have decided a AMD FX4100 Cpu and now the problem is i need a card for around 100$(120 max) that can play battlefield 3 at 30 fps at medium setting at 1280x720(my monitor supports this as max).

One card i have in mind is AMD Radeon 6670 that plays bf3 at 1600x900 at ultra in some youtube videos....
so u guys have any suggestions?

my config would be:
AMD FX4100
FPS SAGA II 500w
4GB RAM
ASUS 5A78L-M LX

Thanks.

If you live in the U.S., you can pick up an EVGA 550ti for $110 on amazon, which is more powerful than either of those cards.

You might also check prices on the 6850, they're creeping down to the $100 mark.

good luck!

HD 6670 should be good enough since you are playing games at 1280x720.

No. Don't listen to them. A 6670 will barely run bf3 on low at 30 fps. If you really want to be playing those games on medium, with decent frame rates, save a little money and get a better gfx card. Like the 7850 / 7870, very good for the price. You could save a little and get the 7770, and it might play okay.

I agree that the 6670 won't deliver what he's after, but if the 7750 is outside his budget, then the 78xx's are even more so.

@shaquib. What is your budget for the gpu and where do you live?

Is it a good buy?

The 6670 will run on a 350w PSU.
The 6770 however requires at least 450W PSU.

You *may* need a more powerful PSU. If your current PSU has a strong 12v rail, you won't. Look at the sticker on the side of your PSU to see what the amps are on your +12v rail. it will looks something like "24a @ +12v"... at a guesstimate you'll need at least 24a on the 12v rail to be safe. That accounts for your 4100 (a 95w part), 50w for northbridge/etc, and 100w for the 6770; 245w in total. that accounts for maximum power draw on all platform components & the video card at the same time, with a bit of headroom.
(24a * 12v = 288w)

*If you plan to overclock, you *will* need a stronger PSU.

good luck!
