APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within next 7 days

BUDGET RANGE: Up to $130 CDN Before Rebates

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Playing Counter Strike 1.6, Counter Strike Source, Team Fortress 2 and Call of Duty 4. Also editing HD video.

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: Current setup is the 300 watt stock that came with my PC and an Nvidia Geforce 8400 GS which decided to poop out on me :p  I would prefer to not have to upgrade the PSU but i will if it is absolutely necessary

OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: 3 GB Ram and Q6600 Quad Core CPU

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.ca, ncix.com or tigerdirect.ca. Whichever one has cheaper price

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada

PARTS PREFERENCES: I am fine with ATI or NVIDIA. Sapphire, Zotac, XFX or EVGA would be fine

OVERCLOCKING: Yes / No / Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes / No / Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: (1680x1050

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: The most strenuous game that it will have to play is COD 4 at a resolution of 1280x(i cant remember right now :p ) on low settings. It will also need to be able to edit HD footage in programs such as Sony Vegas Pro 9 and Adobe After Effects CS4.

Thanks in advanced :)

Since your resolution and PSU is low then HD5670 is a good choice, just like ct1615 said above... :) 
Agree, get 2.0 card...
