Hi, all of those graphics card should work as your motherboard has an PCI-E x16 slot and assuming the power supply has an adequate amount wattage.

Unfortunately, none of them capable for heavy gaming as they all low end budget graphics card.

the 6570 looks like the best one of the bunch, as well as the most expensive.

That's a very small budget for a graphics card. Do you have any specific games your looking to play for the most part? You can compare GPU statistics all day, but the best way to find a card that will fit your budget and meet your needs is to look at performance in game. I've based my past GPU purchases around benchmarks done with the games I'm looking to play and have been really happy with my purchases. This last year the games were Battlefield 3 and Skyrim. After choosing the games it only took me a few days to find the card I wanted.

That is indeed a small budget for a graphics card, we also need to know if your computer's power supply is strong enough to power it.  If you are gaming, I would go for a Radeon 7800 eeries or better, but those are above your budget.

The best graphics card i could find is the MSI 7750 which is capable of playing various at low to medium settings but that would be dependent on the resolution. Could please define "heavy gaming" and the current system you have, so we can determine whether the graphics card is compatible.

the 8800 was quite famous in its time for giving great performance with the least power requirements. it is very well  past its prime nowadays but still might be compatible with more modern cpus/os. looks like the 7750 mentioned is a great one to check out but with a little bit more budget requirements.. 

 

 I have been checking out the asus 6670. it can be had with 2gb gddr3 or 1gb gddr5. it is in the range of $80 USD (51 GBP).

I would go for a step up in performance when it comes to graphics cards, the MSI Radeon HD 7850 is well above your budget though.  At least it comes with two free games to offset the price increase.  Make sure your power supply can handle the card you choose before buying it.

this is a common theme, for a few bucks more.....

 

 sometimes a few extra  bucks can mean the world of difference to a gaming enthusiast.

 

        what i see is that your quad-core CPU has so much gaming potential if coupled with the right gfx hardware.

 

 I like the Asus 2gb gddr3  hd6670 because of its soon-to-be legacy D-sub output port  ~  as well as the passively adaptable DVI-I and its single slot profile and active cooling profile and spartan power consumption. That thing is a budget oriented package deal.  I am sure it can deliver sometimes bewildering frames-per-second on certain games so the benchmarks await discovery.
