I'm more of a Xbox 360 gamer (Halo Reach)....but may start playing some PC only games on a CASUAL basis like Diablo 3, Serious Sam 3: BFE, etc...likely FPS.

Otherwise, I will be web surfing, MP3, Office applications, etc.

Looking to upgrade the graphics (could use an existing Sapphire Radeon X800 on a temporary basis) for the following build?

Budget is $50-$80....thinking a HD 6670 or maybe a HD 7750. I like the HD 7770/6850, but they are over my budget....could wait for pricing to drop. Do NOT need 60 fps....30...probably 40 fps would be fine (drop to medium settings if needed). Already have a 25.5 inch Asus 1920x1200 and several SATA/IDE HDD.

CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H ATX LGA1155 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Hard Drive: Mushkin Chronos 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk
Case: Cooler Master Elite 330 Upgraded ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Antec 550W True Power New ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (64-bit)
