Hi

I might get ATI 4670, 1GB for some cheap bucks, so just wanted to know if its good.

Currently i have Geforce 9400 GT with 2.6GHZ Dual Core.

Check the below link

Through this it looks like its good, but is it good upgrade, my Monitor resolution is 1440x900.

Can i play all games like RE5 etc at high settings with AA off with it, please tell.

Hello :) 
It will give you a significant boost in gaming and will play RE5 on high settings fine
Another good option would be HD 5770 if you can afford it

35$ is an awesome price for that card.
It will run games at that resolution for a while. I would say that you should go for it!

I don't think GTA 4 will run in high settings due to your CPU(Dual cores are insufficient).

Rest it should run all the games at 1440X900. Some with high settings and some with medium-low settings.

But since you're getting it for $35 only, just get it, use it for a while(as long as it runs games at that resolution ), and then sell it!!

$35 for a 4670?! wow that's awesome :D 
All GPU limited games will run on high setting on your resolution but in some games like GTA IV which benefit from a faster CPU(And also it isn't very well optimized either)you may need to run it on medium settings(however its said that a patch has come for it which gives FPS boost)

Dual core is "sufficient", but it could hold the game back. I played the game on an E8400 (3GHz) and a 8800 GTS 512MB and it was playable.

Settings might have been medium (most probably custom), not sure, but I played at 1680x1050. It wasn't super-smooth, but playable without me loosing my temper once. You also have to understand that some display settings have higher costs than other without necessarily giving a noticeable difference. Oh, and I played on Vista 64 bits with 4GB of RAM (which is another thing GTA IV like: RAM).
