$100 does not buy much at retail these days but you may get lucky on the second hand market and the most there you can get is a 4850/70 or a gtx 260. Retail $100 can only get you a gt240 or a 5670 at the most.

You own two 4890? If so you can make your self a nice $150-200 more to spend if you can sell them for what they are worth after losses to shipping ang fees.

GTX 560 Ti or 6950

Do yourself a favor and done get the 5670. I tried running Witcher 2 on it and the performance is ridiculous. On medium and anything bigger than 1440X900, you wont get past 30 FPS, with most of the good stuff disabled.Add another 50 and get yourself a 5850 for that.I am replacing my card today for the exact same reason.

I think that you might have no problem getting them sold and that will help you out by having a larger budget on top what you said that you had already or so I have read. $300 can get you a single more powerful card over than what two 4890 can offer.

Here are the rest of my specs. My pc is a a6152n . Core 2 quad (Q6600) . Is this an actual quad core processor .

After reading this post with this gentlemen who wanted to replace his mobo (I have no idea how to find the type/brand of mobo I have) I was wondering if buying a new video card might be a problem or are mobos really not that bottlenecking. Ive also upgraded the PSU around 2-3 years ago the same time I got a 8800 300ish mb card.

Any suggestions on where to upgrade for me on a strict budget?

a gt240 will perform on par to an 8800gts, and a 5670 only slightly better. to see any real performance upgrade aim for a gts250, gts450 or ati 5770.

One of the things that makes this game look so good, but also kills the cards is the texturing. So much of it, so large of a sample, and then overlay any lighting/shading effects. My point being, don't buy a card with less than 1Gb of VM.
