I have a Dell XPS 435T with 8 GB Ram. Looking to change out the standard NVIDIA GeForce GTS 240 (overheats). Looking at using a ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card. Thoughts? I really want to keep the price under $100.

If the power supply is around 300 watts, you are basically stuck with either HD 7750 or HD 6670.

I have a 435t - i7 920

2 days ago I swapped out the stock PSU with a Corsair 650HX 650W PS. I also put in a Radeon 7870 2 GB video card as well. Performance jump was incredible.

I would highly recommend the 7870 for sure, however those options are definitely over the budget you mentioned. Just wanted to let you know that you can put a high end card into the system and it works..
