but that would be a waste considering it still wont be able to play those game well at all. unfortunately, you may need a new computer to have any added performance :(

Not every one has the money for a new system and a HD5570 will give that Dell a new lease on life.

i realize that, thats why the op has to decide, however, if he gets a new monitor, it wont be able to handle it, and it will barely be able to handle most games at decent settings now. its up to him.
