    If you can stretch your budget to $135, this card will run circles around those weak GPU's you posted. It's $120 after rebate and you would be able to play most games on high settings.

    ^Odd, in the list, it says $134.99 and $119.99 after rebate but shows different price in the product page.

    You will be fine, with low end to mid range cards, your CPU will not be bottlenecked. Also PCI-E generations are all compatible with each other, so a PCI-E 3.0 card will work on a PCI-E 2.0, 1.0 slot and such.


    If you cannot go above $100, this card is stronger than both those GPUs too.
