Dell Inspiron 350 graphics card upgrade.

Hey everyone here at Toms Hardware. I own a Dell Inspiron 350. Here are the Specs.

Intel Core 2 Duo (E4500) @ 2.20 GHz
2 Gb DDR2 RAM (2 more Gb is on the way from Newegg)
Integrated Graphics (G33/G31) Express Family Chipset.
300 Watt Power Supply
1Tb HDD Hard Drive
Sony RW-DVD Drive
Windows 7 Ultimate

I am trying to upgrade my graphics so I can play some slightly older games like COD4, Crysis, BF2, ect. Currently i'm very interested in buying a Sapphire Radeon 5670 1GB DDR3 graphics card. It's on Newegg right now for $70 bucks. Its has a VGA port which is what I need because I can't spend over $100 bucks on a new card.

So what do you guys think? Would this be a good card, especially for the price its at? If you need anymore information from me just ask.

    Sorry, but I'm new to Tom's, and I don't know how to edit posts. What I meant to say was this Graphics card has a VGA port and I don't have to money to afford a new monitor, so I'm stuck with an old VGA monitor. Thanks in advance if anyone can help me.
  2. Thanks greghome. i ended up buying the sapphire radeon 5670 ddr3 1g. luckily i will so start working again so i can buy a whole new computer.

    a second question, will i be about to play COD4, Crysis, GTA IV, ect on decent settings?
  3. Thanks a lot man. Is there any cheaper upgrades I could get to help get higher FPS, or should I save up for a new pc.

    Thanks again.
