Hello,
Motherboard - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX

CPU - 3.00 gigahertz Inter core 2 duo

I don't recall the power supply but I would prefer a lower draining card.

I plan to use it on 1920x1200 for games such as Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2, and might try out higher end graphics games also. Use it also to watch movies on my TV which is 1920x1080p. If there is one with 2 HDMI that would be preferred.

I can't spend a lot right now so anything around $100 would be great. Any help and suggestion is greatly appreciated.

your best bet is to find out what wattage psu you have first. I say that because (eventhough you probably built your own pc) sometimes you'll have just enough power to run the system as is. At work I was going to put a pretty low end card in my pc but the hp system had a 250w psu and was using ~200w to run it... counting capacitor aging since it was an old c2d it was pretty much maxed out and the system wouldnt even power on with the card in it.

I believe it was a 450w psu if that helps. Still looking for a 2 Hdmi card that would fit in my motherboards slot.

We would need to know the brand/model to be certain but a 450w should theoretically handle the HD6770 and it is the best you are going to do for $100. As for 2xHDMI that is quite rare. You should just use an HDMI adapter on the DVI port if that is really necessary.

Having the HD6770 installed on the PCI Express x16 slot won't cause any problems or graphics power loss?

That is the only slot it's possible to install the HD6770 or any current graphic card in really.
