Default Replacment VGA need help!

HI my fellow people!

I have a HIS 4670 got it just over 13 months ago for my budget build and my fan is dieing and i have skyrim in the mail on the way..... SO i can send it in for repair but thats going to take way to long so whats a better time to get a new card =)

ive been very happy with how the 4670 has worked played oblivion fine with med to high settings (samsung 2253lw) now ive been looking at a few card and im torn about a $130 cap but if i can spend less id be happy ive been looking at

Newegg.com - HIS H679F1GD Radeon HD 6790 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Newegg.com - XFX HD-677X-ZNFC Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Newegg.com - HIS H677FN1GD Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100328L Radeon HD 6770 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Newegg.com - MSI R6770-MD1GD5 Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Newegg.com - XFX HD-667X-ZNFQ Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

now im by no means a hardcore gamer i dont need max settings but i dont want crap if i could plao skyrim like i did Oblivion id be happy but im like if im going to be spending money wont not upgrade now i know thw HIS is the best of the lot but im just think if id need that much card and it about the max my case could fit

the storm scout case is definitely big enough for those cards, but if youre not sure, just measure.

i would get the xfx card; pretty sure it has the best warranty.

I don't know why they don't post warranty info on Newegg anymore, but all XFX products come with a lifetime warranty.

We got it, bro.

I would go with the second one on that list. It has better cooling than any of the others. Though you may not be a heavy gamer, every bit helps.
