    Good evening!
    So I currently have kind of a old rig and I think I'm gonna start upgrading it slowly one component at a time :)

    And I wanna start with the GPU, atm I have a sapphire 4670 512mb card, I did some research and found the 6670, is it the same 4670 with a few improvements? Is it worth it?

    What would you recommend me? I have a $130-140 budget and I want it with as little power consumption as possible. I play at 1360x768 @ medium/high settings.

    Tokio.

    Is the $130 budget on GPU alone? And yes the 6670 is faster than the 4670. It's not a HUGE stepup, but quite a bit.

    I would recommend you see the buy/sell/trade forum here and you might get lucky. You can even make deals, if you have anything to trade. :)

    depending on what is it and how it was handled you can surely find some good deals

    IE: for myself i found a used XFX HD6850 Black Edition for 90ish $ (in switzerland but anyway) even if im about to fall into pitcairn it was a worthy buy and the only cons was not having original CD and OC soft, solved using Sapphire Trixx and a guide on 6850 here in TPU forum

    (quite fresh on registering on that forum but quite used to use it and it absolutely ROCKS :rockout: )

    HD 5670 DDR5 much better

    It can run BF3 at max, depending on you CPU

    As I know HD 5670 DDR5 is the best graphic card that doesn't required for PCI connectors

    also you can have look on HD6670




    anyway my friend has HD4670 512MB DDR3 DELL

    he can run all games at max, because I think he has I7 2600K, Really he is surprising me[​IMG]!

    So may you need to upgrade your CPU

    In my PC I can Play MW3, Crysis1 .... at max sitting on 1360x768

    I have E7500


    If you have good CPU you graphic card will work faster [​IMG]

    HD 7750 is the best card w/o extra power.

    From Tom's Hardware "The Radeon HD 7750 is a drastically different graphics card, even though the same piece of silicon serves as its foundation. A 55 W power rating means that it doesn’t need an auxiliary connector at all—just a 16-lane PCI Express slot. And a 6.5” PCB is short enough to fit in space-constrained environments like diminutive desktops and HTPCs. We haven’t seen a serious graphics card with single-slot cooling for a while, but this board manages challenging feat, too."

    so there you have it, 55 Watts.
    Mohammed says thanks.

    wow in US everything is considerable cheaper... I did some research and found a shop nearby selling the 7750 for $140 but it has passive cooling which scares me & also benchmarks show that even 540 is better (well in most cases)
