Here are my computer specs:

Model: Dell Inspiron 570
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 245 Processor 2.90 GHz
Installed Memory(RAM): 4.00 GB (3.75 usable)
64-bit OS
300W PSU
VGA Monitor (1600 x 900)

I've narrowed it down to three graphics cards, but I'm open to other options. They are: Radeon HD 6570, Radeon HD 6670, and Radeon HD 7750.

Here are my questions:

Should I go with a Sapphire Radeon card or an XFX Radeon card, is there any difference in performance?

I have a semi-low budget, and I'd like to spend less than 100 dollars, which card would fit in my budget?

Lastly, my primary concern is that these graphics cards aren't compatible with VGA Monitor Output. I remember reading that somewhere, and I don't want to buy a graphics card only to find out that it isn't compatible with my monitor. Are there "VGA Compatible" counterparts for these graphics cards or will I have to look into other ones?

Thanks so much guys. Any help or advice is appreciated.

No difference except in warranty performance is the same at same clock and memory speed.
With a $100 budget HD6670 is your best bet but the HD7750 is a better performer for a little over $100.
The cards come with a DVI-I connection which can supply VGA signal and often include an adapter like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So all three will work with a VGA Monitor? And they come with an adapter that supports VGA?

If so, problem is solved. Just let me know for certain.

hi,

regarding your monitor : no problem there,

you should get any bottleneck with any of them

Sapphire Radeon card or an XFX Radeon card are good brand.

The only concern is the 300w PSU.

Do you plan to game; if so what games ?

I'm planning on playing Diablo III. And trying to avoid any complications. I'll probably order from newegg. They seem to have a good name.

All those cards will run on a modern 300watt PSU. Total system power consumption with HD7750 (the highest of the 3) 216watts under gaming load! http://www.anandtech.com/show/5541/amd-radeon-hd-7750-r...
If the adapter does not come with the card there is abundance of them on the market like the one I linked from newegg!

I've decided to go with the Radeon HD 6670. I think it'll be fine for playing Diablo III on Min. Settings. Here's a list of them on Newegg:

I'm a little confused as to why the price range varies so much between brand name and small differences. Couldn't someone point me to the 6670 that will work best with my VGA monitor? After this, I'll be all set, thanks guys.

Why not get this MSI one of the cheapest cards with GDDR5 memory (faster than GDDR3) and has a VGA connector on the card! http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And this will run Diablo III very smoothly with no problems? Do you think I could handle maximum textures, but no shadows, etc? Thanks Rolli.
