Hey a while back while playing games on my pc it just crashes and i have to restart. Slowly it happened more often and now i cant play any game for more then 5 mins before my pc shuts down, even when watching videos sometimes. I think i need a new video card?

I have this pc :http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Docume...

It has a really old gt 230 but honestly for the games i was playing, like league of legends and starcraft it worked fine. So what I need is basically someone to tell me what video card I should buy(even i even need one?) to replace it that will work fine without any problems. Like it wont not work or something because of the other components, sorry im very noob at this stuff.

I live in canada and need a video card that costs around 50-100 bucks. I dont care about max setting or anything I just want to play some basic games. Thanks for reading.

as u have a 350W PSU so get a GT630, it won't be a huge improvement from the 230 but it will be noticeable,
