Hey guys, so I was looking to buy Diablo 3 but when I ran the "Can you run it?" program I found out that everything on my PC works fine except my video card.

My budget is up to $200 (but the cheaper the better :)  ) and I would also like to be able to run other games in the future such as WoW and Guild Wars 2, but for now I want to focus mainly on Diablo.

My current PC is
]http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02629593&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=5049534]
and it says the Card is a Integrated ATI Radeon 4200 and power supply is an Internal 250W (100-240V)

My screen resolution is 1600x900 and I would like to run Diablo on highest if possible

Again I'm new to all this and I don't understand much other than what I learned in my few hours just now researching this stuff. From what I can tell I need something called a power supply in my computer along with a graphics card?

Anyways, I hope someone can help me on my problem :)

You need to buy a power supply first of minimum 500w.
250w power supply that you have isn't going to cut it.

Get either Antec or Corsair brand. Those two are the well known brand for PSU.

As for the graphics card, get ATI 5770 or ATI 6770 or ATI 7770.

ATI 6850 is compatible with your motherboard and yes, you can run Diablo in its highest settings.
