Ok, so my son has largely taken over the family PC and he is looking to upgrade the video card with his money.  Currently it has a HD6870 running.  His budget is around $120 (though i might pitch in a little to help him).  Let me know if you have anything that might be a decent upgrade. 

 

Thanks

Is an upgrade going to make a significant difference?

 

What is the CPU, motherboard, RAM and power supply?

I think he is just looking for something newer or more powerful than the 5870.  He was looking at new cards but I told him he might get more for his money with a used card.
