Hello,
I have the following older desktop (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01...) and was looking to upgrade the video card to play new PC games like Diablo 3. Can anyone recommend a card that will work with my desktop for around $100 or less. I tried a Radeon 6670 but tech support said it would not work with my motherboard.

I see no reason why not. Your motherboard has a PCIe slots where the 6670 could go.

The only reason that they will say that is either because your case is slim or the power supply is not enough. Unfortunately, both information can not be derived from the web. Can you confirm what is your power supply? How many watts?
And whether your case is the slim type ( around 4" wide ) or at least 6" wide?

The case is larger than 6". Also, I put a new PSU in (Cool Master GLite 460W) and also put the graphics card in the PCIe slot. Downloaded all the drivers and it's just not recognizing the card. Do I have to disable the intergrated graphics card? I was thinking about returning the card, but if I can get it to work that would be great. Thanks.

Did the tech support specify the reason why they say the board is not supported when it has the PCIe slot? Do they claim any incompatibility?
