My System Specs

Question Ati Card showup (which to choose)

Hello im new joined today however find me on guru3d (clueless noob xD):
Right I am buying a new graphics card at the end of the month these are on my spank list:
>Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5670 512MB DDR5 128-bit PCI-E x16 (EyeFinity)
>Sapphire AMD Radeon HD6570 HM 512mb DDR5 128-bit PCI-E x16
>Sapphire ATI Radeon HD6670 512mb GDDR5 128-bit Hyper Memory

I AM SO STUMPED, or should I just go for the 6570 1gb ddr3 because gaming on 512mb is not recommended?
P.s my budget is R900 / 120$ ( not 100% spot on on the currency conversion)

honestly.. i wouldn't get any of those for gaming. If you have $120 to spend, i would get a nvidia GTX460 used.

He is in South Africa I think. Add $40 onto everything.

To op, what are your needs?

Monitor resolution, games to be played, other hardware etc.
