i have an old laptop with gforce 105m (512 MB)( i can play COD MW here without lagging ) graphic card. this laptop is 3 years old
and my laptop always having a issue.

i already have a computer set but my system unit was destroyed because of the power supply.
now i want to buy a new system unit for mid end games + i want to play high end games like BF3 ,Crysis etc btw i always play games on low setting so i dont really need a super high graphic cards i just need the minimum requirements.

Can you tell me how much graphic card (MB) do i need to play mid end games?

+ so i already found two SYSTEM units
Specs: Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 260 3.20ghz Dualcore
Motherboard: Emaxx MCP61D3

Motherboard: Emaxx A55GM-iCafe

1 GB video memory is enough for you to play games on mid settings.

Go with this one :

Specs: Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 260 3.20ghz Dualcore
Motherboard: Emaxx MCP61D3
Video: 889mb Onboard( i know this one have low MB i'll just buy a new graphic card but one also have high GHZ)
Memory: 2gb DDR3
Hard Disk: 300gb SATA

Both system units are not suitable for gaming.
The Emaxx MCP61D3 has a Geforce 6150se which is if you search a bit on youtube you'll find will struggle even with most wanted 1.
The Second choice is an APU which means it has onboard graphics too which is the Radeon 6530D but this one is more powerful.
Higher GHZ doesn't equal more powerful that goes the same for the amount of vram too.
the A6 tri-core will outperform the dual-core 260.
and the 6530D will handily smash the 6150SE
however if you want more serious gaming you will need a discrete graphics card not an onboard one like the HD 7850 or GTX 550ti.
