It will run most game at medium graphics quality at 1920 x 1200 with decent performance. Also do not buy the 1GB RAM version since the additional 512mb of RAM yields very little performance gain.

Below is a review of the HD 5670 1GB, all games maxes out graphics quality:

You can buy a HD 5670 512MB for $65 after a rebate + $3 shipping:

The next step up is the HD 5750 for $110 after rebate + $1 shipping:

Lastly, the HD 5770 can be had for $125 after rebate + free shipping:

Agreed, you would do well to bump up the GPU a notch or two. The 5770 is great value.

Good luck!



Nearly Identical question, but which rig is better between these two:
I game infrequently, but like to have good performance from the cpu. Games: DAO, Civ5, SC2, mostly strategy or RPGS - little bit of FPS- MW2
