Yes it would work. The HD5670 needs a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot and the G41 chipsets have PCIe x16 slot. It would work but at a reduced capability.

The bandwith of PCIe v1.0 is almost half of what you get in PCIe 2.0, which would hinder your cards performance. Unfortunately the cards today all are on v2.0, but due to backward compatibility of the cards they work in v1.0 as well. For more reference read this:

I think the HD5670 would be good. But at your resolution (1366x768) even a lower card would do. Just suggesting the HD5670 because of the reduced capability. If possible get a better mobo cheap.
It is also advisable that you change your PSU to something better.

The GTS450 is better than the HD5670. if you have a budget upto that much you can go for it. But it is not necessary at your resolutions.

On the other hand your PSU needs a change. Get something better like the Corsair VX450W which may be the best 450W PSU in the market. Running modern day cards on a generic PSU may not help as they may blow up your rig.

Board, CPU, RAM all are a bit old!

Latest are the Intel Core series which is the i3, i5 (LGA1156) and i7 (LGA1366). New RAM's are DDR3. Heck, even the next line up of Intel processor/chipsets are coming into the market soon.

If only you came to the forum sooner asking for help on the new rig. :)

I did not mean disappoint you. But the unfortunately there is nothing new for the LGA775. The last and the best chipset was P45/X48 chipset that came out way back in 2007-2008. X48's came with DDR3 support.

I would advise you to save the cash on the board for a monster rig next year with the latest Sandy Bridge or AMD's Bulldozer.

By the way, what do you mainly do with your PC?

Best solution

I think it should be the other way round, the PSU then GPU. Coz if the PSU falls, it will bring down the house.
