How well does 6670 perform ?

Hey guys. i have a new system but im using an older GPU. which is the amd radeon hd 6670 2gb ddr3 . my system is

Intel i5 3570 k
8gb Ddr3 ram
asrock b75 pro 3
corsair cx 600 w psu
and a mechanical hard drive.
and ofcourse the card like i stated before
AMD radeon hd 6670 2gb ddr3

I am planing to upgrade to amd hd 7850 2gb ddr5
but not anytime soon
in the mean time could you guys tell me how well it will run new games such as arma 2 , battlefield 3, witcher 2, and maybe crysis 2 ? (i dont need fps and benchmarks for all of these games)

Thanks :D

  1. not very well. but since you are going to build around it, you'll find out.
  2. OK... Its not a good card for modern games. Would barely run Far cry 3 and BF3 at 1080p.
    What resolution is your monitor?
    What is your budget?
    Why are you getting a B75 chipset board but an I5 3570K, you will not be able to OC the CPU with the board you have chosen?
  3. 1.My monitor i think is 1440 x 900, it says on screen resolution reccomended, im always a newbie when it comes to resolutions
    2i already have the 6670 from my other build and i already ordered the parts
    and later i plan to buy 7850 for 150£
    3.i dont think i will need to overclock. the b75 had everything i needed all the back ports pci ports etc,hopefully in a couple years time i can replace this motherboard when the cpu stops handling games and other stuff.asrock z77 will not cost as much by that time
  4. if you dont plan to overclock, why the K chip?

    You will struggle with the games I mentioned before. For most else you will be fine at that resolution, its low, lucky for you.
  6. Yes the 3570K has unlocked multipliers, but if you pick a motherboard with a chipset that will prevent overclocking that's a bad combo. You could have got just the standard 3570 instead (non-K version).
  7. there wasnt any price difference at the time of me buying it for the non k version.
  8. Using a HD6670, I was able to play GW2 on mostly low (a few medium) settings at 1600x900, BUT, it was a GDDR5 version, not DDR3 like yours. It was "sufferable" (it was my father's system, while I was visiting), and the CPU was only an E6750, but if I were going to use that system for any length of time, I'd have brought my HD7770 with me.
    I was also able to play @1600x900 on a test system which included a 3GHz Phenom II X4 and a HD7750. On that system, most settings were medium, with a few high (but no AA). Play on that machine was much better.
