Radeon HD5670 graphics card: $69.99 at Newegg
You’ll have to deal with a $30 mail-in rebate, but this XFX graphics card features about $100 worth of goodies for $70 when the dust settles. There’s one gigabyte of 128-bit DDR5 memory, DirectX 11 support and HDMI/DVI/DisplayPort outputs. If you know what all that means, then you and I are both geeks.
