Hello
I am planing to build a gaming rig but I don't have all the money I need know. So I found these old cards on eBay and I am thinking of using them during 3~4 months until I can buy a good vid-card. My monitor resolution is 1680*1050.

What of those cards do you think I should get? If you choose the GTS 250, let me know what brand do you think is better. I like the fact that the Galaxy has 60 days return.
The HD 6670 (slower than this cards) is able to run most games ad mid settings. Do you think the i5 paired with this will give me decent quality\fps until I can get another card? I will be playing Dragon Age 2 and Legend of Grimrock until GW2 arrives.
Thanks in advance for your help.

I want to get a HD 7850 but I don't have money to get it now. I know the cards aren't great. I just want something around around $60 ~ $70 to play at mid quality during some time until I can get the vid card.

Go with a Radeon HD 6770 until you can get the 7850 or 7870 - none of those cards will play at any sort of quality settings.
