Hello guys, I need your help :) 

I want to upgrade my graphic card HD4200, so I can play Dota 2. i know Dota 2 isn't really a demanding game, so I am thinking to buy a mid-range graphic card under 100$ if possible... My specs are the following...

Motherboard:

Manufacturer: Foxconn
Form factor: uATX
Chipset: AMD 785G
Memory sockets: 4 x DDR3
Front side bus speeds: 1333/1066/800MHz
Processor socket: AM3
Expansion Slots
1 PCI Express x16 slot for graphics card
3 PCI Express x1 slots
1 PCI Express x1 minicard slot

Processor:
AMD Athlon II X3 445
Operating speed: Up to 3.1 GHz
Number of cores: 3
Socket: AM3

Ram: 4GB DDR3-1333

Power Supply:
Internal 250W (100V-240V)
Total wattage: 250W
Input voltage:

Oh yeah, do I need to buy a better power supply as well? Sorry, I am soo noob at these computer thing.
