If you get the 6670 gddr5 model it will play games, but probably not on high settings smoothly. The 6570/6670 are entry level cards from last generation and they are lacking in many areas.

The Intel® Core™ i3-3210 is a solid entry level processor that when matched up with a good video card will provide good performance when gaming. Now it is important to remember that most of the performance for gaming is coming from the video card.

Before you worry about upgrading your video card, you need to make sure your power supply can handle it. If yours is good enough, a GTX 650ti is probably the fastest you can get with your budget. Ultra will still not be possible on newer games. Some of the newer games make even high end systems cry and beg for mercy.

You might be able to find a Radeon 7850 used on ebay or amazon for $150. It's a high end card and will play most of your games on high or ultra settings. If you are only looking for new cards then the gtx 650ti and the radeon 7770 would be your best bet right now until AMD releases the 7790.

Yeah... Need to know what power supply you have.

The Radeon HD 7750 is a pretty good card for about $100 and can basically run on any average quality 300w PSU. It is basically equal to a Radeon HD 6770.

If you have a decent 400w PSU then you should be able to run a GTX 650 Ti which I believe costs about $150. It is more powerful than AMD's Radeon HD 7770 and I believe AMD is planning to release the Radeon HD 7790 to compete against the GTX 650 Ti. In other words, the GTX 650 Ti is a good bang for the buck graphics card.

I would be looking at a used 6850 or GTX 460 or 560 for a good price assuming your PSU is up to it.

7770 is the best card to pair with an i3 according to ur budget. if your power supply is weak then 7750 is almost just as good.

gtx 650ti is faster than hd 7770
