Hello, I am looking to upgrade my graphics card on my newly built system. The system has the i5 2500k, G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) memory, MSI P67A-G45 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 motherboard, and my current card is an HIS Radeon HD 5670. (I also have windows xp right now, but I'm planning on upgrading to Windows 7 in the near future.) The only reason I didn't buy a new card was cause I was a little strapped for cash at the time.

I am perfectly capable of choosing a specific card, but what I was wondering was whether I should just grab a newer card or a second 5670? I am under a bit of a tight budget so I could maybe spend 150$ on a new card, but I was thinking about if it would be better to just grab a 5670 for around 75. Would this be a cost effective way of upgrading my system, or should I just save for a while and buy a newer card? Thanks.
