Definitely the GT 240 DDR5. It's much stronger.

Why are those two your only options, though? I bet you could get a newer, better card for the same price if you'll give us your budget.

The Gt240 ddr5 its an old card, older than the HD5570, but the nVidia card is faster, I would suggest you a 440 gddr5 or something like that, also a 5670 gddr5 would be one of the best choice you can get for light gaming...

If you cant find anything better than that, get the gt240, i got an old build with an athlon ii x2 @3,0ghz, 4gb ram and that card, and runs almost all games in a 1440x900 resolution with high detail, which is more than enough for my little brother to play with better quality than my ps3 lol

I played with the same specs for a year - great little gamer.

This is simple. Don't buy a card that has ddr3, it'll be much slower than the same card with ddr5.

Nice rig btw. I thought about dropping a 945 in my Dell, but I'm saving up for a LGA 1155 build instead. :D

@jessterman21 I actually began with a build that right now my little brother uses, thats was my 1st rig, i could oc that athlon to get 3.6ghz it was great, untill i started to upgrade over time! Im almost done with amd builds, my mobo supports the new fx processors but im waiting for piledriver, if theres nothing magic im going to lga 1155 also, for my next upgrade im getting an intel combo u.u
