Upgrading video card to play Black Ops II

I want to upgrade my video card, if possible, to play Black Ops II (have you heard enough about this game already...) I have an HP Slimline s5414y and it says my graphic card I have now is not able to run this game. What, if anything, can I do, recommendations for compatible video cards with my current system?
Motherboard:
Manufacturer: Pegatron
•Form factor: microATX - 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) x 24.4 cm (9.6 inches)
•Chipset: NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
•Memory sockets: 2 x DDR2
•Front side bus speeds: 2000MT/s (2.0 GT/s)
•Processor socket: AM2+
•Expansion Slots:
•1 PCI Express x16 slot for graphics card
•2 PCI Express x1 slots
•1 PCI slot

Processor:
AMD Athlon II X2 215
•Operating speed: Up to 2.7 GHz
•Number of cores: 2
•Socket: AM3
•Bus speed: 4000 MHz HT3 (clocked down to 2000 MHz)

Graphics:
Integrated graphics using nVidia GeForce 6150SE
Any help would be appreciated until I can get a good gaming computer just to play the game for now.

    The best GPU that you can fit into the system would be a low-profile 7850 (which is not sold in the USA) followed by a low-profile Zotac Nvidia 650 which I have running in my slimline gaming system.

    Honestly.. with your CPU and system specs with a new graphics card your system with still not be able to play the game very well at all.

    UPDATE: Here are some links..

  2. If your PSU is 300watts it will run a HD7750 lowprofile and might if the PSU is 250watts.
  3. 220watt might cut it for the HD7750. Here under load on more power hungry CPU 216watts total system load measured at the wall http://www.anandtech.com/show/5541/amd-radeon-hd-7750-radeon-hd-7770-ghz-edition-review/23
    The 7770 linked above needs a power connector.
