I want to know a good graphic card for gaming with a price thats preferably in the low 50-100 dollar range. Also, my power supply is 350w. Thanks.

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8400 @ 2.66GHz
RAM: 3.0GB
Motherboard: intel dg41ty (integrated)
Anything else I need to include?

You have a pretty decent CPU

If anything i'd suggest buying a new power supply and the HD radeon 6770 if its available for a fair price in your country.

But rather wait for stank's reply ;D

Is it a cheapo power supply or a quality unit? If it's a good quality unit you should be ok with HD5670.

Consider yourself lucky. I ran across someone yesterday with a gateway, same cpu as you and 180w psu.

I was going to tell the guy to add a video card, he would need to replace the power supply, but upon further review, I realized his motherboard didn't even have a pci-e slot. You could see the solder points on the board, but apparently they left it off to save 25 cents.

Your Board:-

It Definitely Has A PCI-E Slot!
And While Choosing A PSU, Please Choose A Branded One Only. Like Corsair,Antec,Coolermaster,Gigabyte,FSP Saga II etc.
And Also Buy Those Which Are 80 PLUS Certified!(More Than 80% Perfomance Under Full Load)!
