Great Card, with HDMI, DVi & VGA
Its "only" got 512MB of Ram but thats ok for me!
scores pretty high on passmark (score = 1224)

Greatt Value for money :-)

I paid a few pence less than this from Scan a couple of days ago, obviously if you're not a member of AVForums, you have to pay postage which makes it more expensive, but if you're a member you'll get it next day. I ordered about 6pm and had it by 9:30 the next morning!

Just checked and out of stock at Scan.

On the benchmarks I checked, there was 1fps at most between the 512MB/1GB versions (alot had exactly the same results), so not really worth an extra tenner. They're really quiet and so easy to install. Only thing you might want to be wary of is if you're pushed for space in your case, as the larger fan on the sapphire model only left me with 2mm of clearance between this and the card in the PCI below!

I've got it on a 350w PSU and have been told by friends and people on here that it should be fine.

does it require an extra pci-e connector?

same price at Amazon

How is the card for you?

lilraul, it just plugs into a single PCI-e slot, no extra connectors required at all (the box says "PCI Express based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard"). Took out my ancient 8500GT and put this in it's place, installed and updated the drivers/software and was up and running in no time. Probably 20 mins all in.

I've got a four year old Core 2 Quad Q6600 with 2GB DDR2 and it played Modern Warfare on full and L4D1/2 with no problems. I ran L4D at various configurations - 1050 with 2xAA and 900 with 4xAA and both ran well. Not as smooth as my friend's GTS 250, but looks better than my 360.

Having played on my 360 at 720p for ages, I'm happy enough to have it running at a slightly lower res (900 as opposed to 1050) with more detail or it run a bit smoother. You're never going to buy this card for amazing graphics though, especially anything like Crysis or Metro 2033 on anywhere near to full graphics.

If I'd needed to get a new PSU for it though, I'd spend that bit more and got something like a 460 or 5830 (and have spent more than three times as much all in, in the process!). But it looks like this card is aimed at people with older/weaker PSUs and for less than two new games for my 360/PS3, I couldn't be happier.

Thanks.

Good deal. I'm still humming and hawing about how much to throw at a new graphics card, I don't game too heavily on the pc but there's a certain "rich mens boots" logic that tempts me to spend a bit more for a more up to date card that better matches the rest of my pc. Still enough of my indecisive ramblings, good find OP

I checked the fps rate on L4D2 with my C2Q 2.4ghz/2GB PC/5670 setup, and put it up to 1050, 8xAA and 8XAF, with all settings on highest and it was hitting 60fps 99.9% of the time.

Not sure what it would do with a slower processor though!

Apparently the 6670 is coming in the second quarter of 2011 for retail. Not sure how much more powerful it will be though...

Compared to the HD 5670, the PCB hasn't suffered any major modifications, … Compared to the HD 5670, the PCB hasn't suffered any major modifications, apart from the rearrangement of some of the power delivery circuitry, the card featuring the same 2+1 phase count as its predecessor.Things get different only when we move to the GPU itself, as the new Turks architecture packs quite a a few changes when compared to the previous Redwood-based cores.For starters, the number of stream processors available has been increased from the original 400 to 480, the same thing happening to the texturing units as Turks now packs 24 such units compared to the 20 found inside Redwood.In addition, the core clock has also been increased, and the HD 6670 now runs at 800MHz, 25MHz higher than the HD 5670.The other major change brought to the HD 6670 is the addition of the UVD 3 media engine that brings 3D playback support as well as other improvements over its predecessor.

Excellent card! I use it in my HTPC which I use for sofa gaming from the sofa on my 38" TV and it can take games like Left 4 dead 2, assains creed and bioshock no problem at high settings.

It also carried sound over HDMI with is great as I hate wires!

I would reconmend for the budget gamer.

Northlondon01, could you possibly link to that preview? Waiting for Q2 might just be worth it, particularly if trixx works with the 6670

Sure, just trying to find it in my history...

Here's the spec page from AMD... amd.com/us/…spx

I think this is where I got it from - news.softpedia.com/new…tml - looks like they've done the benchmarks tests too, but I haven't checked them out.

Much appreciated

Good price !!
