The HD5670 should handle you resolution well. Overclock on the CPU will speed things up and reduce bottleneck if any. If you are still on XP 2 GB is ok for ram but for vista or 7 4Gb is the recommended min. A good PSU for that system would be Corsair or Antec in the 400-500watt range.

The HD5670 is a good card for that resolution but as far as "want to run every game on max settings" goes it isn't close to that. What you want is an HD5770. If you really need to max out AA on the most intensive titles like Crysis and Metro 2033 then I guess a GTX 460 but really the HD5770 should be more than enough.
Also, yes, you'll want to OC that processor at least up to 3ghz and another 2 gigs of ram would be a good idea.

I own the hd 5670. But the truth is, @ 1440x900 res, u need more especially to max out crysis.
Get this:

- it's cheap and work as promise.
- get urself a quality psu 400-500 watt with vga power cable (coolermaster 500w should be enough)

You can use this review (multiple in game benchmarks) and judge by yourself.
1280x1024 is closest to your resolution in pixel count.

If you read the test setup techpowerup doesn't max out settings for testing at 1280x1024 resolution but rather use 2xAA and "A bit of eye candy turned on."
