5670 dead, need a replacement

My 5670 just died. I was wondering if you could help me decide which to get as a replacement. I read the May article of best cards under 150 and the 7750 was listed. I figure that would run on my machine. Its an older machine so maybe its too much card for it?

I do game quite a bit but nothing too hardcore but I have no issue spending 110 on a card. One concern I do have is I have a pci slot under the pcie and my current dead card takes only one slot, will I be able to toss in a card that takes up two slots? Silly question but I dont know the answer. If I cant, please suggest anything I can replace this current card with.

PSU - 400
AMD Athlon II X2 220 / 2.8 GHz
6 gigs of ram
2 tb hdd
win 7 64bit


Any and all advice is welcome, I do not know too much so I hope the specs I have listed are enough. I know I need an update but right now I need the card. Thanks for any and all info and suggestions

Not exactly sure of the PSU brand. Got it from Newegg last year. Will take a look.

@ sunnk - no issues with fitting? ( since the pci slot is under the pcie ) ? I assume it will work since the card will have space but I thought id ask :)

no issues its very simple just open your case measure the lenght from the end of the case to hdd cage and then look the measurement of the gpu which one you ar going to buy check the width height and then you are done just make sure your case has that much space i think it will fit.:)

Thanks. I will take a look today when I am home from work. I was worried about width of the card, not the lenght. Hope this is a good card for the money :) 

Thanks again
