Hi, I want to upgrade my NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT with 512MB to some thing more better. I believe that the power supply is 550w. Have a Intel core 2 duo quad processor Q6700 @2.66GHz. Running Win 7 business 64 bit with 4GB of RAM. I run duel display monitors with the Primary monitor resolution of 1680x1050.

The main use of my computer is Watching movies via netflix, playing World of Warcraft and a few other games. The price that I am working is is about 150 usd max

Hello and welcome to the forums
HD 5770/Nvidia GTS 450 are great cards and can handle games fine on that resolution.

If you are very cost conscious then you can consider the Asus HD 5670 which will cost you $55 (free shipping) after a $35 mail-in rebate.

You will still see an increase over the 9500GT. But not as dramatic as the HD 5750 or HD 5770. A typical HD 5670 is in general a bit faster than the nVidia GT 240. The GT 240 is a little faster than the older 9600GT.

I would agree to go with the 5670,great low budget card.You might even be able to get away with playing WoW on 2 monitors i think the 5670 has Eyefinity.With the 5670 you might get close to ultra on 1 of the monitors and high if your using both.Are they the same size or is one bigger than the other?
