I need to buy a card that'll last me for near about two years.

1) I want to get a 9600gt but will the directx 11 games make it obsolete before two years? and should I go for the 5670 instead?
(I play games at res of 1024x768)

2) will my Intel Dual Core 2.8 GHz processor bottleneck either of them?

Thanks for giving it a read.

your better off going with the 5670 for future proofness

The HD 5670 is more powerful than the 9600GT.

Yea the 5670 is better, although a little more expensive.

What processor is it? It could be a Pentium D or Celeron D.
If they are around the same price then go for a 5670, however a 9600GT should handle 1024x768 fine.

Its a Pentium Dual Core.

Though I am interested in getting the 5670, its dx11 performance is underwhelming >>

Last time i checked cards like 5870 and 5770 performed ~5% better using dx11 mode over 10.1... dunno if same would apply to 5670, and this article had no comparison to dx9 mode either

Also whats your budget?

I dont think you can really call it underwhelming in the sub-$100 category. For its price range its great performance. If you want awesome performance you shouldn't have gotten a cheap Pentium dual core PC.

get hd 4770/4730 at the same price of 5670 with much better performance ( although only dx10.1 ) but it wont matter as all games are dx9 with some enhancements.

Of the two you mention the 9600GT is definitely the better value for the money. The HD5670 is only about 4% better at your resolution;

This HD4850 is the same price as an HD5670 and is much better as you can see on the chart;

If you want a DX11 card that could conceivably last you for two years then you will need to pay a bit more for at least an HD5750;

Well, 4 years ago PCs didn't come with i7

The HD4730 isn't available in the US if that's where you are and if it is available where you are it isn't much if at all better than the HD5670. The HD4770 is but it's usually more expensive than the HD4850 and isn't quite as good.
