Best nVidia Graphcs Card under 100$ for use with i3 540?

Hey, Guys.
I am looking for a Graphics card under 100$ which could run most games on med/high settings.

My Specs:
Intel Core i3 540 @ 3.07GHZ
4.00 GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (Should i add more RAM?)
Intel Corporation DH55TC (XU1)
NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS (I know this is old. :P)

I am not looking for amd card as for PhysX. So if that doesn't matter much. I can look for them too.
Any help, any, would be highly appreciated. Please help :P

Update: I am thinking will these (HD 7750/7770 or GTX 650) cards have VGA ports?
I'm using BenQ senseye 3 LED so.
Thanks,
Ekaansh

  1. best is get hd 7750 1gb ddr5 @90
  2. Extra RAM won't help in terms of gaming. For around the $100 mark, I highly recommend the AMD Radeon HD 7770. If you find this too much, then the 7750 would do just fine.
    However, depending on your monitor's resolution, you may not be able to play games at medium-high settings.
    1080p= maybe low-medium on BF3, high on anything below Bf3 graphics.
    720p= high ultra on BF3, max out anything below BF3 graphics

    This should give you some ideas. PhysX support is pretty much irrelevant, so don't shy away from AMD cards because of that.

    Where are you planning to purchase them from? You'd have to just check on site. It should be under "output options" or something along those lines.

    Umm. I'm in India so, I'm thinking of getting it from some vendor. These cards dont have VGA ports, they have DVI-I DVI-D and HDMI so If i use a VGA to HDMI connector/cable will it cause problems? or decrease the Perfomance?
  7. no it will not decrease performance
