GT 240 x2 vs 5670 HD

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 5670
  1. 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.

    I just realized now that you can't SLI GT240...
    Need learn more...
    Thanks mod.
  4. No worries. ;)
  5. Er...Well that sucks I guess I could just get a 240 for $45 :|.
  6. Or you could get a 4850 1GB for $90?

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