With the current trends of emerging high-performance graphics processing units or simply "video cards", one can always drool on the costs these new models come tagged with. If you're in the local market, you probably have a hard time looking for a good entry-level video card pegged at around Php 3,000. Good News!... PC Express recently released into their inventory the budget gamer's video card - The Powercolor HD5670 1gb DDR3! And what's even more exciting is that this baby comes only with a Php 3,500 price tag - now, that's definitely an amazing price!
HD 5670 1gb ddr3 (priced at Php 3,500 -- as of April 3, 2011)
With 1 gb of memory running at DDR3 and 30% cheaper than its DDR5 counter part with the same exact memory, the HD5670 1gb DDR3 is a steal for the price. You have a decent processor but not a very strong price. If you put this card head to head with a similarly priced GT240, this would wipe the 240 hands down. The HD5670 is engine clocked at 775MHz with a memory clock of 667MHz x 2 with an interface at 128-bit.
Although the older Nvidia 9800GT might be a little bit faster (with the same price range), the Powercolor HD5670 comes with DirectX 11 support and runs compatible at PCI-E 2.1 bus standard. If you're looking for a decent videocard and you're a bit tight in the pocket, the Powercolor HD5670 1gb DDR3 would certainly fit what your looking for. Decent price of Php 3,500 and commendable performance is certainly worth looking into. Try to visit your nearest PC Express branch or contact your local stores for the availability of this price-steal GPU.
