I cant decide for now which one will best on gaming not a very high resolution maybe mid resolution or even high resolution.

here's my computer spec's

AMD Athlon II X2 260 3.2 GHz
4GB Ram 1333
GT210 Palit
600 Watts PSU
15.6" LED

Im planning on upgrading my video card. This is my choice

Sapphire HD 6670 1GB GDDR5

Sapphire HD 7750 1GB GDDR5

Which one will be great for gaming with my specs? I use to play Crysis 2, Far Cry 3, Hitman Absolution, The witcher 2 Assassin Kings

I play this on GT210 and even i use very low settings also low resolution i got lag any recommendation?

What is the brand of your PSU? and what's your budget (maybe there's a better card for your budget)?

i would suggest that you buy a better psu. there are not-so-expensive 500w-550w available. personally, i would not go lower than 7770. but of course it depends on your budget. but it is very important to have a good psu, esp if you plan to have powerful cards in the future.
just to give an example, my 550w served me for 4-5yrs (i lost count), it is still ok now, i just replaced it since i need something more powerful.

the 7950 would not be a good match for that system, and is overkill for his monitor, it's 15.6inch! Switch on the brain and engage.
he's prob playing in around 720p or maybe 1680 x 1050, there are more mainstream cards, that would suit his budget, and be a bit more balanced with his system (and not being held back by his processor!!!!!)

to the OP, 7750 is a decent performer and may get you med to high with your current sysem at average resolutions. so maybe 650ti, gtx660 (non ti) might be more value and get you decent performance too.

@OP on your last post, you mentioned the 650 (non ti) this is the entry level from Nvidia for the 600 series. It's really poor, and I would recommend staying away. the 650ti is a good entry-mid level card and has decent performance too! Just don't expect to have all the bells and whistles on, playing BF3 at 1080p :)

not really sure, for your peace of mind, look for some reviews. but if i am not mistaken, it should be close. maybe the 650 is a little faster. or maybe just get the cheaper one. Just don't get a good vc without replacing your gpu, or it will be an early new year.

Palit has good warranty by the way.

i bought 6870 for my little bro about 2 months back, same price with 7770. but anyway, budget is really the biggest factor.

the 7750 GDDR5 is hands down the best value for money. i have it and it plays all my games at near max settings on 1440*900 while consuming very little power. get it for sure

The HD 7750 is a great card is the best card for your budget, i'm using it on 1080p resolution and it played great on Crysis 2. And BTW if yu want to get the GTX650 then try to get one from another brand (ex.evga/asus).

the 650 non ti is approx same performance as 7770, so is a good bit ahead of the 7750. Depends really on what price you can get for one. Addtionally the Nvidia card has physx and adaptive vsync, which can in some games, make it feel smoother to play. Games like Batman and Borderlands 2 make use of physx.

if the 650 and 6670 are your options, i would definately choose the 650.
some benches for you:

this review is for the 650ti, but has the numbers for both 650 and 7770.
