5670 512MB DDR5 or 1GB DDR3?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

These two graphics cards are at a similar price. The 5670 512MB DDR5 or 5670 1GB DDR3.

So which is more important in terms of speed and performance (both 5670), higher MB or DDR?

Thanks

If you're running a 5670 you probably aren't going to be running max settings so I would go with the DDR5 version. If it's a general use non-gaming computer then I'd go DDR5 all the way.

No I won't be playing games (bit multimedia and multitasking) so the DDR5 it is. It's this one I am thinking of getting then, any good?

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/190138

From the excellent reviews on that page it says it does not need a big power supply to run it so that's good.

I was a little worried about this comment though:

I got this card, but it had a double slot for ventilation, and won't fit in my pc, can you guys tell me if this one here has a double stack or a single

How can I tell whether it will fit mine or not?

My motherboard is Gigabyte M52L-S3P http://www.gigabyte.lv/products/page/mb/ga-m52l-s3p_10/specs/
