    Hi I would like to know what Graphics card I can get to cheap to play games like Diablo 3. Not even on high but just enough to play it without any lag. Basically I want the cheapest solution possible.

    If you look in the link my power supply is 250w only so try to keep it within that range.

    Go here, then click the "Download Program" button and allow the HardwareProfiler.exe file to run.

    Once the scan and analysis is finished, a new window will appear.

    Click the "Power Analysis" button. It'll show you the minimum power supply rating, based on your current hardware.

    When you consider the additional load of a more powerful graphics card and hard-core gaming, you'll see that the current 250 watt power supply won't do it.
