The GTS 240 in a PC we have here blew out. I need a replacement for it. Hopefully an upgrade if possible! Has a Dell 360w PSU with it. Looking at the <$110 range. Is the HD 6670 a solid choice?

Thanks for any help.

Yes 6670 is a good choice. But it will not give very good performance like 6850 or better. If you can upgrade your PSU and stretch your budget to $200 for PSU and GPU, I recommend changing to 6850 instead of 6670.

Hope this helps you.

The 6670 came up in a lot of recent reviews, so that was my first guess. Is there a NVidia counterpart? All they really ever play would be LoL, WoW, and eventually Diablo 3.

Well they should run in medium Setting I think (at 720p). They are not games like BF3 or metro 2033 which is the most demanding game in the planet. And if you are asking about the Nvidia counterpart you it's maybe GT 440 or GTS 450.

how many amps does your psu's +12v rail have? if it has enough amps:
under $110, a radeon hd 6670 1 gb gddr5 would be good fit for a 360 w psu. depending on your psu's capacity you might even be able to fit a 5770/6770.
if you can upgrade your psu to a 550 w or higher, 80+ rated one, then 6770 or a 6850. amd's nvidia counterparts at this price range are not as price-performace efficient as amd's. good nvidia cards start from old gtx 460 1gb or newer gtx 560 (non ti). for example:
