XFX Radeon HD 5670



+ Add a Comment


I'm thinking of upgrading to this from a 8400 GS that I had to get because neither of my 5770s worked. My monitor is a few years old, and runs at 1276 * 768 resolution. I only play free games at the time, but I might start playing more graphically intense games for which you have to pay. My dad won't let me get something over $120 so I can't try my luck with another 5770 or even a 5750. Do you think this card will be a good upgrade? Or is there something with even better bang for the buck? I would rather it not have a PCIe power connector. 



Intel Core i5 750 @ 2.8 Ghz

Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600 Mhz

Corsair TX650W

Asus P7P55D-E

BFG GeForce 8400 GS

Antec 900

Windows 7 Pro 



in the end it will still be better than my sparkle geforce 8400


in the end does it matter?



 no Crysis scores? Has something become the new Crysis?

It is called Metro 2033. Have you seen the requirements to max this thing out (Optimum settings)



* Core i7 CPU
* NVIDIA DirectX 11 compliant graphics card (GeForce
GTX 480 and 470)
* As much RAM as possible (8GB+)
* Fast HDD or
SSD :shock:

Enabling 3D Vision
Metro 2033 utilizes NVIDIA 3D Vision with
compatible cards and hardware. To play in 3D you will require:

* NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 and above recommended
* A 120Hz (or
above) monitor
* NVIDIA 3D Vision kit
* Microsoft Windows Vista or
Windows 7



I was wondering why it was running a little sluggish on my brother's machine (he has a Core i7-920 @ 3.4 Ghz with a Radeon HD4890).  Had to tick it down from "Very High" to "High".  Now the question should be, "Can it run Metro 2033?"

Anyhow, I bought this very same card but it turned out to be a dud after it wouldn't work from installing the drivers (did a clean re-install of Windows thinking it was driver conflict).  Bought a 5770 and been happy since.




I thought Nvidia dx11 card (fermi) wern't even on the market yet

In regards to the 5670, when ATI's answer gets slaughtered by a 3-year-old nVidia design that's 10 dollars cheaper, it doesn't matter. The 9800GT still wins.
