I currently only have an integrated graphics card an am looking to buy a dedicated one, however I don't know too much about them and was looking for some advice. Which one of these would be better for running low profile games such as minecraft? Graphics card 1: click here card 2: click here

See here. I'd have said they were broadly comparable, so it may come down to price.

I'd probably go for the 6770, though, if only because it has DDR5 memory rather than DDR3. DDR5 is a newer, faster technology. And it does marginally outperform that 5670. Either outperforms the 5550 which the Minecraft wiki identifies as being required for optimum performance.

Ian Thank you for the advice it is much appreciated, I've decided to go with the 6770.

You have not told us what PC you are running.

The questions you need to ask are: Is the Case big enough to house a full size Graphics Card. And: Is the PSU powerful enough to supply the Card of my choice
