<--- LOL! I dunno if ATI is ripping people off by giving them DDR5 cards and classifying them in GDDR5...This GPU is the same card (5670) but the one I posted is GDDR5 instead of DDR5...You might want this one instead. Could get ripped off with getting a DDR5 card instead of GDDR5 - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb&#47;s 3.5&#34; Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
