    Lately I've been having very high DPC latency issues, after I tried everything and it seems the culprit was my 1-2 year GT 220. So I thought it's time for a new graphics card even because the GT 220 is pretty low end. I've been looking at two graphics cards but I have no idea if they're good, especially for GTA IV. Can't be something very expensive.

    I've been looking at the Sapphire HD6570 2GB DDR3 and the ASUS HD6670 1GB DDR5. Though my motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-G41M Combo and I wonder if these DDR's will work. Opinions about these two are welcome, and it's pretty much near the price limit...

    Hi !
    go for gddr5 models they'll always be better performers, 2 gigs memory is useless as it won't be used excepted by professionnal software, not by by games.

    That's really expensive here in Portugal :eek:. I'd love to have that but the price is just too high and buying from outside, well dunno.

    The 6670 GDDR5 is good that's twice the bandwidth of your old Nvidia :D

    I m totally agree that your software need gddr5 models and they are comprehensive with performace, and mainly that any professional software needs 5 gigs memory.
