Whats your native resolution and your budget? If that psu is a no name brand get another. Try getting the Corsair 430w psu. Its going for between 31 to 50 usd

So, you need a new GPU + PSU for under $100 that will play Battlefield 3? Impossible, sorry.

No modern GPU will run on a 190w PSU, not even close. You need at least a good 450-500w for a BF3 ready GPU.

The bare minimum just to get the game opened would be:

I'm assuming your TV is full 1080p. Even with all low settings I'm not sure if it will be playable, especially in multiplayer where your dual core CPU will likely suffer as well.

Ok on a 720p TV it is doable. My guess is your average frame rates would be around 35-40fps indoors. Outside on a big map you may drop into the teens though.
