Need more specs than that, like Power supply, motherboard (or computer brand/model) budget, basically any information you can give about the computer will be helpful.

What is the make/model of your PSU?

Because of your PSU your not going to be able to get an optimal card.Just something that will allow you to play,at least better than the intergreated.

Here's what you can get...

PowerColor 6450 $46 + Free Shipping

Sorry, the PSU in my computer now is a Delta DPS-300AB-15B with a max Power 300W (that says it can't exceed 160 watts for some reason)
and i have a two other PSU laying around a LiteOn PS-6251-2H1 250 Max Power and a Dell NPS-180AB A 180 Max Power

Well, all of your PSU listed above is not good...
If you want to get better picture then you must get a new PSU and higher card, seeing your budget is limited, so I agree with purple stank above, PowerColor HD6450 (this even not a gaming card), at least it's much better than integrated.

I agree you need a much better psu and graphics card if you want to see any perfomance gain, and your budget of $60 won't see you doing this.
Best to save up some more money for a better PSU and GPU

The main problem is HD6450 is NOT a gaming card, I would say you can play that game but with lowest setting. Lowest setting mean the picture will not good and you will experience some lags or stuttering or something like that...
