A year ago I built a computer and I never ended up buying a video card but since diablo 3 has been released I want to be able to play it smoothly. If you could recommend a video card that fits my system and since I don't know much about gaming computers if there is anything else I should add I would appreciate it greatly.

Heres my components:
Rosewill DESTROYER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 120mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan, 1x Top 120mm Fan, 1x Bottom Fan

Wintec AMPX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 3AXH1333C9WS4GK

ASRock 880GMH/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX445WFGMBOX

If you are looking at the absolute minimum that can play diablo III at highest setting, the 6770 it is.

But since you are upgrading & have the budget anyway, it will be good to go for a more powerful card. While Diablo III is not very demanding games, others might be.
Here is a good one at $220 after mail-in rebate:
