Specs: Win 7 64, 4

I am casual gamer. I occasionally use blender as a hobby (blender doesn't use ati cards and I am beginner in blender. not sure about my future blender) . I plan to use different CAD software like solid works (solid works use ati cards) auto cad 3D etc..

My PC is running on a HD 6450 1gb ddr3. and I have a 6770 1gb ddr5 in my shelf (New sealed)

I wish to sell one of them.

which one should I sell?

If I sell 6450 i will get 1500rs (24.3$) (indian rupees)
for 6770 abt 5000rs 81$ max

what should I do. pls compare current new prices and my needs and tell me which one I have to sell.

Thank you in advance

You may find this as a stupid question, but If you have read this much, pls say a word.

Well neither card are used typically used for the applications you use but they do support them, so with that i would stick with the more powerful card and keep one as a backup. You can also test them both yourself and see which one works better with the software you use and with games. Obviously this takes time but if its important to you i'm sure you can find the time.

✔ Best Answer
The HD 6450 is a HTPC card not a gaming card. It uses slow 64-bit DDR3 memory & has only 160 stream processors. Your HD 6670 uses much faster 128-bit DDR5 memory & has 480 stream processors. Although it's considered an entry level gaming card, it's MUCH better than the lowly HD 6450.

Keep the HD 6670, get rid of the HD 6450.

His answer still applies SAIF; the 6770 used more power but is a better card than the 6670 if both use GDDR5 memory.

If you can get 24 bucks out of the 6450 that's fine but, I'd keep it for a test card.

"6770.. You read it wrong"

The HD 6770 is even better so the choice is pretty much a no-brainer. Skip brings up a good point though, you might wanna hang on to the HD 6450 for testing purposes.
