Radeon hd 6670 on an older system

Hi all!

One of my pcs here is an old pc but it's still useful. It's a 3.0 ghz Pentium D 820 with 4gb and it's gpu is the very poor nvidia 210.

This pc i still going to be used and I use it for gaming sometimes, mainly just for CS:GO but it can run other games too. Of course we are not talking about Crysis on Ultra here!

Anyway I was looking at cards and I saw that the Asus Radeon HD 6670 is fairly cheap. Then I saw this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZCNqf8tKcA of a guy running the MSI version with simillar system specs to mine.

Would this cheap upgrade be worth it? It's currently on Scan for £52 only!

  1. Yes, It will. Go get it
  2. Thanks! Any idea how much improvement it will offer? Because the cpu is very old so I'm worried it will bottleneck (is that the right term?) it.

    a 3.0ghz dual core.. shouldn't have any bottlenecking on that GPU.. and as for improvements..

    significant enough to justify the upgrade IMO.
