Post Which of these graphic cards looks better to you?
Hello.

I'm going to buy a replacement PCI Express 2.1 graphics card for my computer. I've been lurking on the internet, reading what people are saying, and I've concluded with my decision.

I'm going to buy a AMD Radeon HD 6670. Yet, I've come to the point in which I need help deciding which version to take. So, here's where I need the help.

Should I get the 1 GB DDR3 version with 1600 MHz of Effective Memory Clock (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102952) or the 1 GB GDDR5 version with 1000 MHz of Effective Memory Clock (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...58&Tpk=100326L)?
Do not mind about the price, I only wish to know which of those is better and why.

Thank you very much,
Miguel Guzman.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102952 this one would be better as it isnt low profile and it will give more power for you

What are you planning to put it in? The computer in your specs is a laptop.

Keep in mind either one of those cards require a minimum of a 400 Watt power supply.

Thank you! Yet, I want to know, why is it better? Isn't the US$99.99 one better because it has GDDR5 type of memory?

You're right, but the computer that needs a new graphic card is a custom built PC. Here are the specs.

Asus M5A88-M Micro-ATX Motherboard
Radeon HD 5450
AMD FX-4100 3.6 GHz
8 GB RAM
430W Power Supply
