More about choosing cards
  1. well the 670m would be more powerful. It's a choice of do you want to have more money or better gaming.
  2. i know but i was curious about the difference in memory for the gpu's.If it doesnt matter ill go with the 670m
  3. one is about as strong as a 550ti the other is about as strong as a 450, they are only one tier apart on the gpu hierarchy.
  4. ok thanks for the help i will definetely get the 670m just curious about the memory capabilities.
