Specs: Windows 7, AMD Phenom X2 3.3Ghz/4 gigs
I have an AMD Phenom x2 processor @3.3 Ghz.I have a display of 1920x1080 and a motherboard of Gigabyte M68MT-S2 with an integrated graphics of nvidia geforce 7025 of 256 MB.I have to choose between Nvidia GT 610 2 GB and AMD Radeon HD 6670 1 GB.I am more interested in AMD.AMD has about 460 cores against 96 of nvidia.Which of the two is faster?Does the performance depend upon the memory?Will AMD beat the onboard gpu to excel the performance?Plz suggest me sir...need help....

"Nvidia GT 610 2 GB and AMD Radeon HD 6670"
"AMD has about 460 cores against 96 of nvidia"

AMD calls them Stream Processors, NVidia calls them CUDA cores. To do a reasonable comparison, either multiply the NVidia number by 5 or divide AMD number by 5. However, your numbers appear to be incorrect, they should be 480 for the HD 6670 vs 48 for the GT 610. 480/5 = 96 or 48 x 5 = 240, so the comparison is either 480 vs 240 or 96 vs 48. In other words, the HD 6670 should have roughly twice the processing power.

Memory is another issue. Is it 64-bit or 128-bit? GDDR3/DDR3 or GDDR5/DDR5? If good gaming performance is what you're after, 128-bit GDDR5 would be best, 128-bit GDDR3 is next, 64-bit cards shouldn't even be considered for gaming.

The Radeon HD 6670 is better than the GT 610, but either card is better than an onboard GPU.

Its GDDR3....dont know exactly about the memory...but I think I should go for AMD...but my onboard gpu being nvidia, it wont cause a problem if i put on an AMD one?Will it oppose the performance of my new gpu?And what difference it makes of a gpu being 1 or 2 GB as I mentioned the above gpu's?

"my onboard gpu being nvidia, it wont cause a problem if i put on an AMD one?"

The Nvidia graphics drivers need to be uninstalled & the onboard GPU needs to be disabled in the BIOS before the new card & its drivers are installed.

"And what difference it makes of a gpu being 1 or 2 GB as I mentioned the above gpu's?"

None. The GT 610 is too weak to make full use of 2GB, plus I'm fairly sure it's slow 64-bit memory. Besides, memory can't make up for the weak GPU with only 48 CUDA cores. Like I said, it's a HTPC (Home Theater) card, not a gaming card. The GT 610 is a rebranded GT 520 which was a rebranded GT 430.
