    With only a $200 budget, rather than just a video card for your games (your current power supply couldn't support a good card anyway), here's what I'd do:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    Memory: Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2-800 Memory ($52.89 @ Amazon)
    Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7750 1GB Video Card ($94.36 @ Amazon)
    Power Supply: Antec Basiq 500W ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ Amazon)
    Total: $197.24
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

    So how would you say the games will perform with the hardware upgrades you listed?
  3. I'm not a gamer, but it would be a far cry better than your on-board solution.
