I'm wanting to purchase the game Mass Effect 2 for the PC. But I only have a ATI Radeon HD 3200 integrated card in my system. Could someone recommend a good, and inexpensive, video card upgrade for me please?

Publishers minimum recommedned video cards : NVIDIA GeForce 6800 or better with 256 MB of video memory (7300, 8100, 8200, 8300, 8400, and 9300 are below minimum system requirements), ATI X1600 Pro or better with 256 MB of video memory (HD3200, and HD4350 are below minimum system requirements)

We need a lot more information to answer your question properly. I am assuming that your comp is a desktop and is fairly new, since that chipset is fairly new. We need to know what CPU you have, the power supply, and what kind of case you have(hopefully not a small form factor), and what size monitor you are using.

If you have a decent power supply and CPU, several inexpensive video cards would run the game well at low resolutions. I would suggest an ATI 4670 or 5670 or an nVidia GT240 or 9600GT or 9800GT.

You might be able to run the game on the 3200 integrated video, but only at low resolution at the lowest settings, and you still might not get a acceptable frame rate.

I don't think so.
