I've been searching the interwebs for a good card for a new build and narrowed it down to these two on Newegg.

XFX Radeon HD 6670 HD-667X-ZAF3 Video Card: 90$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150545]

480 Stream Processing Units

VisionTek Radeon HD 5670 900310 Video Card : 100$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814129153]
775 Mhz Core clock
400 Stream Processing Units
OpenGL 3.1

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Today
BUDGET RANGE: 100-120$ USD, not using rebates :L

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming primarily, games like Crysis, Bad Company, COD, Oblivion, or Starcraft II

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: In consideration; 500w Power supply.

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2 Ghz, 8gb Kingston RAM, 2 120mm fans Raidmax Case, Asus DVD Writer OEM, Windows 7 Home Premium OEM, 20” Haans-Graaten Monitor w/ Speakers, Biostar MB(PCI-E 2.0 x16)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

PARTS PREFERENCES: Only using ATI/AMD cards for the sake of a budget
OVERCLOCKING: No.

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1600x900

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Outside of differing GPUs they are exactly the same, however the Visiontek has better reviews stating that it does well on games like Bad Company or Crysis, and a quick google of benchmarks backed up their statements. I was going to jump onto the 6670 until the price lowered; everything is cheap for a reason. That may be hypocritical considering they are both budget cards, but I lack legroom with my budget. The benchmarks also suggest that the 6670 has a 5 fps increase in games such as Crysis, whereas the 5670 averages quite well in all the games I want to play; around 27 fps (playable imo).

Thanks! :sol:

I myself have a Radeon HD 6670, and I love it.

I've heard that XFX is a great company for product quality, support and quality control (by this I mean that no one I know has ever had a problem with one of their products), but I've always gone with Sapphire, which in my experience is amazing all around, as well.

I think the Sapphire version might even be a bit cheaper, but it's up to you.

What I do know is that the 6670 is a bit better than the 5670, especially when the 6670 is $10 cheaper.

EDIT: If your budget is $100 to $120, I recommend a 5770/6770 (both are the same, of course.) Like others have said, the manufacturer doesn't really make a difference other than support and quality control, so if you can find a card with good...

I don't think you'll see any differences when it comes to brands really, I found that the real difference came in their warranties and customer service.

Technically the 6670 is better, so I'd go with that.

For the thread... 6750 is absolutley alot better than any 6670... normal 6670's are of 8 Rops and 6750 is of 16 which doubles the pixel and texture fill rates... and 6670 hav only 480 unified processors whereas the 6750 has 720 means helping the graphics to be processed alot faster...


and sorry to put this request here... but thought anyone could help... i want specs from gpu-z on xfx 6670 1G GDDR3 if anyone own it so please help would be apreciated :) i want to buy it actually... screen shot would be helpful if not possible so just want to know the ROps.. texture n pixel fillrates...

@ Tiel, XFX is a good brand. Choose XFX over visiontek. And 6670 is much better than 5670. You can check the link above.
