  1. Only thing really at that price point is a 6670 and that is after rebate:

    Could you please state what resolution you are playing at?
    Also you need to make sure you can fit a video card into that PC.
  2. it has a generic 220w psu?. um i dont think you can have a dedicated gpu with that...

    You sure? I would think the TDP of an Athlon CPU and 6670 would be closer to 150W.
    Either way I am unsure if you could actually install a video card in that PC, unless you are going into
    a low profile card.

    Lucky for you, Diablo 3 is a pretty light-weight game, because that computer can barely be upgraded for anything else.

    Unless you can upgrade the power supply, you can get a nVidia GT210, but that may not be enough to play Diablo 3 at Medium settings.

    You need to upgrade your power supply to about a 300+ watt, that added with the video card would be about $140. The 210 and cards in that class are not really made for games, more for video acceleration.

    would it be hard to find a power supply small enough to fit in my system?

    If it's a standard shape one, no, you can find small power supplies. But they may have made a custom shape or screw pattern for their power supplies.

    Newegg has several small power supplies that may fit, but many of them have lower ratings from the customers. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100009250&IsNodeId=1&Description=mini%20itx%20power%20supply&name=Power%20Supplies&Order=RATING&Pagesize=20
