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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_graphics_processing_units#Northern_Islands_.28HD_6xxx.29_series I think it should be possible to achieve much better SHA-512 crypt speed on it.
