If you could push your budget to get a 5770 then do it. If not, is there any harm waiting for the release of the 6790??

Something like this? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-504-_-Product

What res are you playing at? Chances are with these low end cards you won't need 1GB of slower vram anyway.

Well the 5670 would give you better performance, so that would be the better choice. The 5770 is better than both and not that much more expensive...if you can maybe get a few more dollars D:

Actually the 5670 would probably be a better choice since you have a 300 watt psu. Better to be safe than sorry!

Yeah, you won't need 1GB of vram for that res. And neither card would be strong enough to push AA/AF high enough to add anymore ram into it.

More vram is needed at higher res and higher level of details, you won't be getting either of those going so I'd suggest the faster 512 version since I think they're pretty much the same except the ram difference (ddr3 1gb vs ddr5 512mb).

Or whatever is cheaper

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-342-_-Product

I paid $50 for my 9800GT about 6 months ago, the cards you're looking at seem to be on par or slightly better but I was playing at 1080p on a 512 version and it handled older titles at that res just fine.
