What CPU do you have? And what resolution do you play at?

Power supply is another thing we'll need to know as well

my CPU is AMD Athlon 5600+ dual core processor..
my PSU is not a problem at all....
i generally play at 1024x768 or 1152x864

guys plzz tell me if ATI RADEON HD 4670/ATI RADEON 5570 will be a good choice considering my requirements...

Considering your needs, I'd jump on this offer: HD5770

Bad news, it appears the card I suggested previously was a pricing error.

Here are some used suggestions which would all be better than either of your choices:

EVGA GTS450 for 80$ shipped
Sapphire HD4860 for 65$ shipped
MSI GTX275 for 90$ shipped
Sapphire HD5770 for 100$
EVGA GTX260 for 75$

well,start with a guts upgrade,then worry about middle of the pack or higher gpu upgrade.

right now a 2500 sb chippie should be the best thing since sliced bread. next month or so

amd is supposed to come back in the race with bulldozer chippies...:)

Video Cards
I agree with dang, the man. Add another gb of ram for better speeds yet. You may b able to get a decent quad core/mobo, or simply replace your current 1 with a quad.

There's a quad at Tiger Direct 4 a decent price. How about a phenom II x4 940 black edition 4 $127 + the government's share, which is still less than $150. If you like 2 oc, it's a black edition!

After replacing your cpu, and adding more ram, consider moving up 2 a higher res.monitor as suggested by another member.

After that, you'll be able 2 make better use of your gpu as well.

U mentioned the psu wasn't a problem, 4 a decent gpu a 500w is recommended as minimum, and with those upgrades a good 650w would allow 4 a more powerful gpu down the road.

There are a lot of guys who could help u, and trolling the BST can save even more $ 4 the same, if not better, components.

Good luck and let us know what u decide, out of curiosity.

Do remember the OP is in India so I'm guessing things are a bit more costly...

I think a GTS450 or HD5750/70 would be good choices, depending how much they cost in India.
