Looking for a new video card, something to be able to play Guild Wars2. I am not under the impression I will be able to run it in "ultra" settings. I just wish to be able to play the game low-medium ingame-GPU settings.
I am looking to spend less than $150. This is my current setup, please give me a couple different price outlet possibilities. Thank you very much for everybody's time :D 






RAM: 4gb ddr3 (Ordered 2 more, in mail as I type; safely say 6gb)
CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 810 Processor, 2600 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
OS: Win7 x64
PSU: 350w generic
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce G210 512mb

$150 can buy you HD 7870 which will run your game @ ultra settings whatever your resolution is, but the main problem will be your generic PSU.

Guild war 2 minimum system requirements-

Minimum Requirements
Windows XP Service Pack 2 or better
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, Core i3, AMD Athlon 64 X2 or better
NVIDIA GeForce 7800, ATI Radeon X1800, Intel HD 3000 or better (256 MB of video RAM and shader model 3.0 or better)
25GB available HDD space

So all you need is a reliable power supply like antec 500w($60) and a gtx 460($129). Look for cheaper deals on ebay you should consider 2nd hand deals if its good value. Honestly, if you look hard enough, you might end up getting both psu and gpu within your budget. Just look for decent 500w+ coolermaster, antec, oz, corsair psu and a gtx460/hd 6850/ hd6870 so on and so forth. Worst case scenario, get a 450w power supply and a gts 450 which is still heaps better than your gt210.

you have to upgrade your psu since 350w won't be enough for any of the gaming gpus.

At what resolution would you be gaming at?

Corsair CX430 V2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$35 after rebate.

HD 6850
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$130 after rebate.
It'll exceed your budget by $15, but you'll be getting good FPS for that game.

But if you can't exceed beyond $150.
HD 6770
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$100 after rebate.

1280x1024

I can definitely go over the $150 for that much of a GPU increase. Thank you :D

At that resolution, the HD 6850 isn't really needed, but you may choose to go that way, if you'd like. :)
