Which Radeon video card

Postby Rds1220 » Fri Apr 01, 2011 6:27 pm

Ok so I'm really stuck. This is the first computer I'm really upgrading and I've done reading but by the end of the day my head is spinning. I'm looking at two graphic cards both by Radeon. The one is AMD Radeon HD 6570. The other is the ATI Radeon HD 5570 graphics. Both have 1 GB of DDR3 memory. This computer would be mostly for gaming, Call of Duty UO, Call of Duty uo Modern weapons mod, COD 5, Company of Heroes games like that. I don't know which one to get that is I don't know which would be best to have quick smooth play, no lag and good FPS with no lag. BTW the processer for this comp will be an AMD Phenom II six qore processer. Someone is making this comp for me and they're putting it in at a slight discount for me. I've done alot of reading about the 5570 card and by most it seems ok not great. It can run most games but not really high end games like Crysis and Bad Company 2. On the other hand the 6570 seems to be able to run both low end and high end games. I'm stuck becuase I dont need overkill but I don't want to get the comp and say wow this video card is trash it can't even run COD UO or COD 5 with no lag.

That was really long winded. I guess what I'm asking is a two or three part question.

How good is the 6570?
Which is better the 6570 or 5570 (speed smoothness and all that stuff)?
Which is better for gaming?

They are going to be fairly close to the same, the 6570 specs show to have a few more stream processors but the difference isnt very substantial. I understand about overkill but theres another way to look at it. Buying a good card now just means you wont have to upgrade for a long time. If you buy a cheap $50 card thats just enough to get by on you will find yourself looking for a better one when the next big game comes out and the card chokes to death. If those are your only options, the 6570 oem card would be ok but take a look at 6850 pricing and see if it fits your budget.
