I am after a new graphic card for my Dell Dimension E520 and need some advice please on which one to get. My pc spec is

Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo processor 4300
305W power supply
19" Flat Tft
3 Gb ram
Running Windows 7 Ultimate

I want to start playing a few games on my pc like Medal of Honor etc.. and have a budget of about £100, any advice on what one fits my pc would be great.

ATI 5670 or 5750 ver 2.0

either card will work just avoid the ver 2.1

your DELL 305w actually has 22a on the 12v so its fine for an ATI 5750. just make sure the card is a single slot one since you have a BTX mobo and cards will go fan side up in your case.

ATI 5670 ver 2.0
ATI 5750 ver 2.0

benchmark - ATI 5750 would be similar to the ATI 4850

Thank you ct1615 and Malmental for your very good advice and help. I think I will have to go for the Ati Hd5670 as this one sounds like a nice match, I was wondering tho why the Ati4850 done a lot better in the bench mark tests over the two recommended cards yet seems to be a lot cheaper to purchase.

the ATI 4850 offers similar performance to the ATI 5750 but the ATI 5750 is more power efficient (less power & runs cooler) and supports DX 11 as does the ATI 5670.

here is a review of the ATI 5670 compared against several cards including the ATI 4850 & 5750
