i have a
intel core 2duo process 2.8Ghz
a 21.5 inch lcd monitor...
pls help me decide
The GT 240 is the obvious better choice, it is slightly slower than my 9600GT which I have in my HTPC.
I would probably go for the HD 5750 vs. the HD 6670 since it's raw performance is greater. Since the HD 6670 is a 2nd generation DX11, it is probably a little more efficient at processing DX11 effects. But the HD 5750's raw performance should still make it faster in DX11 games.
Note: If your motherboard only has a PCI-e version 1.0 port, then I don't recommend installing a PCI-e v2.1 video card since the HD 6670 and the specific HD 5750 (which I provided to link to above) are both PCI-e 2.1 cards.
we can make solid recommendations if u know what ur present setup is exactly.
Especially PSU, GPU and MOBO. we already know what ur CPU is.
and ofcourse ur Budget for this upgrade.
The budget is most important.
In general the above recommendations are great @ 100$ budget.
u can go with a HD 5850 / HD 6850
a HD 6870
for 240$ / 270$(These will bottleneck ur CPU)
560Ti / 6950 2GB / 6970
but u have to check if ur PSU is good enough for them.
6670 or 5750 or gt450 as bare minimum for the games you want to play!
