What would be a good Graphics card to play games such as Vindictus and Starraft 2. My budget is around 50-100 dollars.
Right now I am using a HP media Center m7640n.

Before you get a psu, which I don't think raidmax is good, check the power rating that's already in your computer. This only needs a 400w psu is $70 and will play sc2 on high and max vindictus. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... $10 less is the 5570 which will also be sufficient.

radimax psu's are cheap crap. dont buy a crap psu, you will regret it. buy something from manufacturers who always use good components and produce overall reliable products like Antec, Seasonic, Corsair, OCZ, silverstone etc.

Whats the difference between the 5570 and 5670 besides the DDR because the 5670 only has 512 MB while the 5570 has 1GB

if that is your computer then you should perhaps just upgrade the video card to a 5570, since your cpu is slow and will bottleneck anything better. then you wont have to upgrade the psu also. you may need to call HP to find out if the gfx card is compatable.

Save up enough money to get yourself a 500-600w psu at a good price, and get a 5770. the bang for the buck of that card is great.all in all you should spend somewhere around 150.00 for the entire setup. I am not sure how much of an issue money is for you, but i think you will be happiest with this setup on a low budget. here are some suggestions
