Hi, my computer is from Acer. Model : Aspire M7720

I am planning on buying a new graphic card to replace the one which is inside.

However, i need some suggestions on a new card.

My specs are below...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit.

Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.67 ghz.

Nvidia GT 130 @ 1.5 GB dedicated memory.

750 GB SATA hard drive.

23 inch monitor, 1920 X 1080 resolution.

6 GB DDR3 1333 MHZ Ram + 2 GB DDR3 1066 MHZ RAM.

450 - 500 watts power supply unit.

Mobo : Not sure.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know i have the extra 2 gb ram (kingston)

So, if i want to sell my extra 2 gb ram and my gt 130, how much can they fetch?

I know the PSU has low watts, planning on changing it too.

I saw a ATI card which is quite cheap, 5670, is it good?

I just want to play my games on my resolution on high. Not ultra high, just high.

Thx.

5670 won't be giving you good 1080p performance, you'll want something much stronger.

you need something more powerful then a 5670, and considering once Dx 11 games come out that will slow it down even further. i would go for at least a 5770 if you want something equal to the rest of your system. or you go for the Ati 4000 series which has better performance/price wise but is older. maybe the 4870 or 4890. also what games are you planning on playing?
