All I need is a good graphics card. I know I want it to be decently good for gaming and movie watching. I don't want to spend any more than like $70 on one. I can get a $30 off MIR through Newegg on a couple cards so that's nice. There are somany good cards out, I just don't really know what I want at this point.
The HD5670 is significantly faster and DX11 compatible with a number of other superior features. If you can afford it then it is the way to go.
Your Pentium D is kind of outdated at this point. It will limit you in the more CPU intensive current games.
Yeah, it's crossfire compatible. The card I linked is the best deal around at the moment and the one I would choose.
BTW if you would like to upgrade your processor you can do so fairly cheaply. Something like this would be good; http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
The processor has a much more advanced architecture than the Pentium and it is actually a quadcore with 2 cores locked. The motherboard allows you to unlock the two extra cores. It isn't guaranteed to work but the odds are good(about 80%.) It's also a DDR2 so you won't need to buy new ram.
Pentium D... aren't Pentium Ds socket LGA 775?
how old is your system?
if its not too old maybe you can upgrade to a Core 2 Quad or something that is not as outdated but still gives quite a performance
if your system is around 3 years old or something you may want to start thinking about saving for a whole new system...
