Good low price GPU for 1280 x 1040 res monitor

I am looking for a cheap graphics card that is better than the 7600 gt to put in an older rig.

I am using it for a friend, but it will never get upgraded beyond this point, so i don't want anything overkill.

I was looking to keep it under $50.

I found an open box 6570 ddr3 for $41.

Do you think this will suffice or not?

Mainly it will be used for League of legends, but with the current 7600 it has to be on low/med settings.

Another game that will most likely be attempted on it in the near future is D3.

Any advice is appreciated. I do not mind buying a refurbished or open box part and have no preference of brand.

Thanks all

    An HD 6570 should be quite a bit better than a 7600GT. I would go for it.

    At 1280 x 1024 you will be very CPU bound in most games anyway. The new card should help though.
  2. d3 should be okay, but frames will be fairly low. I'd jump to a 6670 if you can stretch it.

    also, nice display pic. underoath fan?

    That site is actually what i was going off of. I couldn't seem to find anything for a better price in that level.

    I would love to put a 6670 into this computer, but that is out of the budget for the friend in which i am building this for. I feel like the 6670 would hit the sweet spot. He already has to pay me in increments and I am only charging him $250. That is for the whole computer peripherals and all. So what if it is a core 2 duo, it is a heck of a lot better then what he is running with now.

    And yes i am a fan of Underoath, at one point considered my favorite band. For some reason I don't listen to them as much anymore though. :/
