So the other day my 8800 gts 640mb died (i think it has it shows blue lines runnning down on the display). I would like to buy a new computer soon so i don't want to invest in a great video card just something equal to what i had. Here are my computer specs.

Asus p5n32 e-sli
4 gb ram
500w psu
windows 7 64 bit
1680x1050 res

The only game i play now is League of LEgends however i would like the option to play WOW again, both games my 8800gts could play on high. I would like to stay under $100 and here are some possible replacements i have found. Hopefully some of you can help point me in the right direction.

PowerColor HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 $60
HIS Radeon HD 4670 IceQ 1 GB $50
Sapphire Radeon HD 5670 1gb $75.00

Will these play Leage of Legends and WoW on High 1680x1050? Or what Should i buy? Budget is under $100. Thanks for your help.

If you could indeed get a 5670 for the price you showed, then it wouldn't be a bad stop-gap card until you built your new system. I'd go with that and save some money for my new build if I were you.

The 5670 will give you good performance on the games you play.
