The Amazon link you posted is for Sapphire Radeon HD 6770 with 850 MHz
core clock.  It is a decent one.  400 MHz is only the RAMDAC max speed,
which is irrelevant.  The 128-bit memory bus is relatively unimportant.

So your GPU should actually deliver better performance per dollar than
e.g. 7970 does.  It is only about 3 times slower, but is 5 times cheaper.

I think it should be possible to achieve much better SHA-512 crypt speed
on it.
