Need help with a video card for a new computer. There so many choices out there now that I can't decide.
What I have now

Asrock 770 MB
Mushkin 4gb ddr3
485 watt PS
AMD x3 3.1ghz

Budget is 40 to 60 for the card. I need the best bang for the buck. As of right now I only do light gaming.

This seems like a good deal

It looks like the 5670 is the one. For a price of 65 to 75 it seems like you cant beat it with any other card without getting a used ddr3 ddr2 card.

well the GTS 250 and HD4850 are not within your budget so settle for the GT 240. if your screen resolution is <= 1280*1024 then you can very well play the games including crysis and metro 2033 at medium-high settings. Go for the ddr5 version of 240 as the ddr3 version is no good... HD5570 ddr3 better than GT240 ddr3

^ Lol mal that's only cause you like Nvidia more. I personally think both choices are great. The 5670 being the better buy because it has DX11 support, not because it has DDR5 vs DDR3. But DX11 support is most likely going to be the future DX for games. So you'll be future-proofed in a sense.
