Newegg.com - HIS Hightech H467QS512P Radeon HD 4670 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Original Price: $96.99
You Save: $10.00
$86.99
($76.99 after $10.00 Mail-In Rebate)

If you're not going for a lot of gaming, or even if you are. It will handle most anything besides Crysis.

9600GSO (highly overclocked)
Newegg.com - EVGA 384-P3-N967-TR GeForce 9600 GSO Superclocked 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Only $54.99 after MIR

It is cheaper and with those high clock speeds it should outperform HD4670

OMG a 9600GSO for 55$!!!

It will need to be overclocked to significantly outperform the 4670. But since its cheaper, it would be the better deal.
