gpu suggestions for a new machine

what i have:

intel i5 2400 3.1ghz
intel dg67bl motherboard

2 x 4gb ddr3 ram

cooler master 460w extreme power psu

what i am looking for is the best graphics card i can run on this rig, my vendor says i can run hd 6770 on this machine, i am not sure.

i had narrowed it down to a hd 6670 but thats no longer available and that leaves hd 5670.

i game occasionally but more so have a requirement for CAD, sketchup, revit etc.

thanks in advance.

    what's your budget??a gts 450 or 6750(5750)is a right card for you.if you dont want dx11 than this is the best card for money -
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125391

    a gtx 260 would be enough.
  2. Around $100

    Also limited choice here. Ths is what's available www.galaxy.pk for reference $100 = rs 9000
  3. Maybe a gt 430 could do the trick

    If your not gaming excessively then gt 430 should handle. It would go great with CAD software like sketchup and stuff.
    You may want to invest a little more in your budget if you can, maybe go up to $150.
  4. well according to http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-performance-radeon-geforce,3018-7.html the gt 430 is quite a few tiers lower then the hd 5670. these cards are available to me in the same price. so don't you think hd 5670 is the better option?

    FYI the cards available here are
