Best PCIe Card For ~$95:

Honorable Mention: Radeon HD 6670

Exceptional 1680x1050 performance in most games, 1920x1200 in most games with lowered detail

Radeon HD 6670
Codename: Turks
Process: 40 nm
Universal Shaders: 480
Texture Units: 24
ROPs: 8
Memory Bus: 128-bit
Core Speed MHz: 800
Memory Speed MHz: 1000 (4000 effective)
DirectX/Shader Model: DX 11/SM 5.0
Max TDP: 66 W
The Radeon HD 6670 isn't really much of an upgrade over the Radeon HD 5670. However, we're going to give it an honorable mention for being the fastest card (at least the reference version we have from AMD) that doesn't require an auxiliary PCIe power cable. That is to say its power requirements are entirely satisfied by a second-generation PCI Express x16 slot.

Read our full review of AMD's Radeon HD 6670 for more information on the card and its underlying architecture.

The article doesn't account for rebates so it's in the $110 bracket. Nvidia really doesn't have any good options at this price point so go with the 5770.
