I have an old Dell computer that I'd like to upgrade to play some games on. It will have a 300w PSU and the processor is some dual core AMD. I'm not exactly sure what it has as I don't have the PSU right now and so I have no way of turning it on to check.

So what's the best bang for my buck? I don't really want to spend more $50 and I'd like to buy it within the end of next week.

If you guys have any qusetions, I'd be glad to answer them. Thanks for all your help!

5670 is great, but you said $50.

5570 is about as fast as a 240GT, but supports newer features. Forget the 4650 its 2 generations old.

In my opinion, for $50 go for 5570, if you can spend more, grab the 5670.

The 5670 is a good deal faster and would be your best bet to play games like those you listed on decent settings. You should be able to run high settings in those games and still get a decent frame rate at 1280 x 1024. If you have a 1920 x 1080 monitor you should be able to run those games at medium settings and get a good frame rate, anything in between, just try tweaking the settings between high and medium and see what gets you the best ratio of performance to quality.

All right, I'll be getting the 5670 if I can afford it or if I find an awesome deal.

Do you guys know if there are any really good deals out there for the 5670 right now?
