I need video card help to play Diablo 3

Hello everyone,

I need to upgrade my video card to play Diablo 3. And I cant seem to figure out what to do(well i know what to do i just cant do it without help xD). I have a Dell XPS 210 with duel 128MB ATI Radeon x600 se cards in it. and they are super out-dated. And 3.25 GBs of Ram. The Xps 210 is a slim body So....im guessing that it takes smaller video cards. <---stress =(
I am afraid of ordering one that cant work with the power supply or just cant work with the computer in general. Can someone please help me find a video card that i can easly buy? I say easily because some sites dont sell certain ones anymore. So please help me play Diablo 3!!

under system it says Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6700 @ 2.66GHz 2.66GHz,
3.25 GB of RAM

P.S this is a hand me down computer until i get my own so i know its not great but im hoping i can use it for now to play diablo. preferably at decent graphics dont worry about price but dont get crazy. =)

and this link is the computer i have minus the video card. http://www.dell.com/us/en/gen/desktops/xpsdt_210/pd.aspx?refid=xpsdt_210&s=gen

  1. This will run it decently on lowest settings

    This will run it better, maybe on max, but I don't know if your power supply will be adequate

    Just make sure whichever card you get is "low profile" so it fits in your slim case.
  2. The low profile Radeon HD 6570 will be able to play D3 on max at about 30fps, but it requires a 400w power supply and I think your system only has a 270w. the HD 6450 also requires a 400w power supply.

    You probably need to get a new power supply if you want to get a card that can play D3.

    Yea I think i have the 270w one. x.x so...me switching power supplies doesnt effect anything else right? i was hoping that it wouldnt come down to the power supply but i should of figured. and on the video cards that are in those links they both have a really long silver front is that piece thats poping out gonna allow it to fit? and i guess im gonna need a small 400w supply or are they all the same size. I will never buy a slim >=D lol thank god this is a hand me down.
