I'm looking for a cheap effective upgrade to play on my new 24" wide-screen LCD at 1920 x 1080 resolution.

EVGA GT 240 512MB GDDR5 x2 $90 for both
or
5670 1GB GDDR5 HD $90 for Gigabyte or $100 for XFX

More about : 240 5670

2x GT240 are more powerful than a single HD5670.
But i don't like to SLI two weak cards like GT240.
You will better with a single powerful card like GTS250... Or if you don't have money right now, save a little bit, even GTS250 is still struggle running at 1920x1080.

Why get two? They can't be SLi'd.

Yes you can, but that card (GT240) is not strong enough to run 24" wide-screen LCD (if you want to gaming).
