I'm still rocking a 5670 and I've been wondering if it's time for an upgrade. I don't really play graphic intense games, mostly Indie stuff like Cave story and Binding of Isaac. Would it still be worth it? If so what's a significant upgrade from such an old card?

Same card I use - I don't need to max out games, but it's nice to be able to, and it's a really good price for it. Easily runs Skyrim at 900p, Ultra-high settings with 30-35 HD texture packs, 60+ fps.

If you seriously play only those games then no. Although, a 7850 isn't expensive and would be a nice cheap upgrade. It really depends on what you NEED to play / max / whatever.Only you will know the answer to that.

Don't upgrade yet.

Wait for the next instalment to come out, if you've waited this long, you can wait a bit longer.

The Radeon '8750' will be faster than a 7950 and will be under $200

Do not let the word 'Satan' scare or anger you, the difference between Satanism and Theistic Satanism is light and day.
