No comparison at all? Based on a less than 25% difference in benchmarks?

Phooey.

I have another problem now, the total for everything is atleast over $200, that is way over my budget, since I was thinking about around $100-$140. But would this be okay?

Thanks, is this at all good, since i never bought or heard of XFX.
But there is another ASUS one http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/produ...9ae573cfd5en02. Its almost the same one that you picked out, but its a 6000 series.
I have checked out Neweggs reviews on both these cards, and I can't decided which one is best.

An alternate suggestion for the power supply:

Corsair 500W PC Power Supply (CMPSU-500CXV2) : Power Supplies - Future Shop

It's rated at 34A at +12V (single rail), which is greater than the sum of the two 12V rails (32A) on the Cooler Master unit. It's a few dollars cheaper as well. (Both it and the CM one are Web only, by the way.)

The 7750 is a better card than the 6670 one. Perhaps more than $26 better. A 6670 isn't (IMHO) a significant upgrade over a 5670, but it at least wouldn't be a step backwards as a repair replacement.

Very true ,By the Bobkn I wasn't trying to offend you with that statement i just know it would be alot better to think ahead for future upgrades is all and giving the Op a chance to have something longer then a year

so should I just stick with this XFX AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB DDR3 PCI-E Video Card : Video Cards - Future Shop and get the cheaper PSU. Is this any good? http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/produ...e3cd0018f2en02

Well it is up to you at this point you showed a 7750 for 114 which a extra 20 dollars for the performance isnt bad

I gave you the varibles of what would be faster but if budget prevails then go with the 6670

but the extra 26 bucks to upgrade to a better card Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) vs Radeon HD 7750 – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare

Take a look at this and you decide if the extra 26 bucks is worth it I would say it is

No offense taken. I'm compulsive, rather than sensitive.

I agree with going large on the PSU. My PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750 has been with me since early 2008. It was expensive then ($149). I'd have to think about how many different systems it has lived in since then. (If I can't replace the motherboard at least once a year, I pine away.)

Staying within a budget and buying stuff good enough to carry forward through future upgrades tend to be conflicting requirements. The main thing is to avoid getting such a crap PSU that it goes up in an Irwin Allen production (60s/70s reference) and takes everything else with it.
