Any video card will be powerful enough for Minecraft. It's not a graphic-intensive game. No such thing exists that says "this video card is for 'x' game". All video cards work for all games, but for graphic-intensive games many users will want a more powerful (more expensive) video card, since it will allow greater video game detail and smoother video (higher frame rate).

Bah in fact with some 256 texture packs and farthest vision it can get GPU extensive...a gt610 wont run this so saying its only GPU bound is false...

Minimum required -
GeForce 4 MX 440
Radeon HD 3200
DX8

Recommended-
GeForce 8600 GS
Radeon HD 6320
DX9

Get something more powerful than the recommended and you'll be set. (Which should be quite easy)

Also posting this for quick reference for other users =D

I also cant take into account MODS =/
