What is your PSU? brand? model?
monitor? resolution?

If you have a big monitor then you better save some more money and get a higher card...

The gigabyte 9800gt is about the best you can get for $60 but for about $10 more after MIR you can get this which is substantially better http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

the 9800Gt easily beats the ATI 4670 in performance. your PSU will have no issue powering it and your CRT will display any resolution you want it to just fine.

In that case what do guys you think of the
HIS H567Q512 Radeon HD 5670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
compared with
MSI N250GTS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Thinking in the price and performance ¿?

Rolli's suggestion of GTS 250 is indeed the best you can get for $70 and faster than a 9800GT and HD5670.
So you can get that.

But on the other hand you have a CRT monitor so you'll be fine even with 9800GT as it can display lower than max resolution without any blur unlike LCD monitors.
With my own experience I can say that 9800GT can play most games at 1600X900 decently (and even higher).
So if you can't go above 60$ then 9800Gt will also be fine.

But If you can, then get GTS250 for $70.

And your PSU is enough for any single GPU so no need to worry about that :)
