When I built my system I did have enough money to add a graphics card and went with stock graphics, but now I have $120 to spend on upgrades. This is my current build.

CPU: Intel Ivy Bridge I3 3220 (3.4 Ghz Quad Core)

Mobo: ASRock H61-iCafe

RAM: x2 DDR3 4Gb 1333Mhz

PSU: 550W Stock

Case: Smilodon

The Mobo has 2 PCi2 Express sockets and I was thinking a better PSU and 2 lower end GPUs? Whats gonna be best in the long run? I use the computer for schoolwork and Minecraft.

nahhh.. here look... the reason i list the one i did was because it is a cheap gpu and its a Ghz (which is basically overclocked or factory "tuned" lets say) you can get a cheaper regular 7770radeon for about 100$

here are the benchmarks

Could I buy two lower end ones for the same performance? I have 2 x16 PCI slots

No, single gpu setups are much better.
