I just upgraded my system and my next upgrade is video card.

I originally purchased an xfx geforce 9600 GSO and when it crapped out under warranty xfx sent me a Radeon HD 4670 1gb as a replacement. Given how strong my other hardware is what would you recommend, buying another 4670 to run a software crossfire or buying a new card altogether. Looking for the best bang for $200 or less. Any recommendations?

CPU- AMD Phenom II x6 1090t 3.2ghz (OC to 4 ghz @ 33c)

COOLER- Coolermaster hyper 212+ (push/pull)

MOBO-MSI 890FXa-GD65

RAM- Patriot G2 16GB (4x4gb) DDR3 1600

VIDEO- XFX Radeon HD 4670

HDD-WD Caviar 80 GB(7200rpm)
-Hitachi 1 TB(7200rpm)

PSU- Rosewill Extreme RX750 750 watts

Welcome to the forums!

If you can stretch your up front budget just a little further (and do not mind waiting for a MIR) you could pick up a 6950 1GB or GTX 560 Ti for $200/$185 (respectively and after MIR).
Either will be a massive upgrade from your current 4670.

As with Griffolion, your 4670 is unfortunately not worth CrossFiring at all.

Yes get a new card. Ideally a 560ti/6950 2gb, but a 6870 compared to your current card will be a huge jump in performance.
