APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: I would like to buy it asap so I have plenty of time to install and ensure that I can return if necessary. I would like to keep it from $100-$150. If it's possible to get a card/power supply cheeper then that's cool too. I know I will need to upgrade power supply, and want to incorporate that into budget.
USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: As the title says I want it for Diablo 3 but I also play WOW.
CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: I currently have an integrated nVidia GeForce 6150SE with Internal 220W
OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: HP 5737 Slimline with AMD Athlon II X2 250 processor. 3GB of memory. 1 PCI Express x16 slot, 2 PCI Express x1 slots, 1 PCI slot
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: I dont really have a preference but I have been using Newegg for my pricing.
I'm really just looking for the best card I can get for the price. The Min. requirements for D3 are NVIDIA® GeForce® 7800 GT or ATI Radeon™ X1950 Pro or better. With a suggested NVIDIA® GeForce® 260 or ATI Radeon™ HD 4870 or better. I hope that's enough information and any help I get is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am also building a computer for Diablo. :P
A budget of 150$ is very hard to get anything decent.
I'd take the Antec as I think it has an extra amp on the 12v rail over the Corsair. It's also more efficient.
Thank you for the help. I placed my order and I hope that I'm fully ready for Diablo 3 now thanks to everyone.
Problem is that 6670 isn't as powerful as the 4870. It's simply the most powerful half height card I saw on newegg. I didn't check your case so if you need a different sized PSU the ones I linked won't fit.
Yeah, I saw the slimline case, so a regular PSU just wouldn't fit in. The card 4745454b listed would work.
I think a TFX PSU should fit in properly.
Bummer. I hope he can cancel the order then.
I hope the OP logs back in soon...
Give him time. It takes time to recover after $hi7ing a brick...
I actually got lucky and newegg ended up auto cancelling my order due to an error on their end. So all is well and thank you again for all the help. I will place my new order . . . soon.
Just want to make sure what PSU I should get before Iplace a new order.
You should get a TFX PSU to fit in your case. If it's a regular PSU, then you'd have to place it outside the case.
