If that's from the apu... Go with the amd solution, might be able to dual GPU solution.

Goes with the 6670, Look into the performance that that provides with your current apu.

The GT640 and 240 are about even. But they wouldn't be much of an upgrade.

Can you add an extra $40 and get a gtx 750?

Actually the 240 is pretty bad. Go with GT 640 if you can't get the gtx 750.

Holy crap, no.
Don't buy any of those.
Those are not gaming cards at all.

Get at least an R7 260x or a GTX 750.

What's the reason for those three being your only options? All three make me very sad :(
Also, what's your screen's resolution?

For the price of the 640 you can get a 7770 - or AT LEAST a 7750. Both being much more capable for gaming.

Dual GPU solution doesn't look that bad. Can't find any comparisons with it vs the 750

Why are you limited to Best Buy? None of those is really a good choice.

TC probably has bestbuy credit, since all those links are from bestbuy. Bestbuy doesn't really stock mid-high end cards, atleast the ones in my area. I agree, all those card choices do make me sad.
