Assuming you're in the US. If a 7770 costs too much, consider a 7750 or 650/650Ti.

6670 is much weaker - stretch your budget if you can.

Where I am street prices are way higher than online.

650, or 650Ti if your budget allows it. Suggest the 7750 though.

Anything with a PCIe x16 slot will work.

I'd wait the three weeks - no point spending $30 on a card you won't use for long. Spend it on getting a 650Ti.

DDR3 is the system RAM (in your case DDR2). Nothing to do with the GPU's VRAM. Every card from the last ~8 years will work.

You can't get the 7770 now? It will work fine on your current system.

Integrated graphics is too slow? Should have X4500 HD on it, which while pretty slow, can at least play movies etc without much hassle.

When you say "new system", do you mean an entire new PC, including CPU/MB etc, or just the GPU? You can get the GPU now and move it to the new PC when you get it.

Integrated graphics is definitely too slow, huh?
