Advice on buying video cards for gaming ( Bf3 Farcry 3, Borderlands 2 Etc..) between:

(! I am getting the Open box with warranty for $69.96 !)

Or

(! $100 After rebate ! )

Got $120 to spend but i need some 10 dollar earphones and an android charger so i cant go over $100. I was going to get the Open box Asus 6670 and upgrade my Psu to 500 but if i can run without it i might aswell use the money on my Video card. Plan on purchasing Tomorrow or some time this upcoming week.

Thanks ahead of time for the answers. :hello:

both will not run safely should they run at all. buy a quality 450~500w psu. the 6670 does not need a 6-pin power cable while the regular 650 requires one (Asus have made one that doesn't need em). if i were you, i'd at least step up to the 650 or 7750 minimum.

if your unit is a good one (not some generic one) it should be able to run the cards that you mention above. between the the two 650 is better.

dont even think of getting a 6670....its total crap..
if you have just the two choices you mentioned, then go for the gtx 650......see if you can get a ti version...

but if more choices are a welcome, then go for a 7770....the ati 7xxx series have beautiful error free dx11 support....
but for an hd 7770, you will have to get at least a 400w psu....(that too a decent one with more than 24amps on the 12v rail)...

if you ain't planning to buy a new psu , then a 375w (if it has a 6pin pci-e connector) CAN handle a gtx 650....easily....
if your psu doesnt have a pci e connector, then in any case of a gpu upgrade , u'll have to get a new psu(look for corsair or antec 400+w)

DONT EVER THINK OF BUYING A 6670....!!

get a 7750. its perfect for your psu and its also powerful. it does not require any cables like 650 and 7770.
