Majority of the games get CPU dependent at lower resolutions.. 800 x 600 is BTW an age old resolution and am not sure if modern age games support it.. The HD 5670 is quite a good card for resolutions upto 1680 x 1050 (game dependent again)..

My monitor is a VGA monitor and maximum resolution is 1024x768 will that work
Also , i used to play far cry 2 on low or med settings with the onboard graphics (256 MB) and used to get decent Fps (like 25-30 ).It wasn't that good but i cannot do frequent upgrades to my pc. By next week i am going to buy my GPU ati 5670.Hopefully By the end of this year i make another upgrade.And thanxxx for your reply

Dude, with that card the only bottleneck will be your CPU, you should be able to play everything at 1024 x 768 with high details...

i tried to play GTA 4 with on board graphic with a lot of lags , crysis used to be slow (around 10 fps) and far cry 2 was fine but now i am tired of that lags and upgrading my GPU .
Can Overclocking help is this case.i used to run my cpu at 2.4 Ghz But now i am running it at 2.01 Ghz will Overclocking help when i install GPU

Overclocking should help but don't expect much from a 2GHz clock rate.. I guess it'd still not be enough.. But you would definitely experience immense improvements moving from onboard to a dedicated video card.. If you can, try setting up a CPU upgrade also.. The C2D E7500 should be available for around 100$ and would be a handy upgrade over your current CPU..
