A Radeon HD 7750 is a pretty solid choice for an entry-level gaming card for low resolutions. Its cheap and has very low power demands, so its ideal to put into old systems with questionable or unknown power supplies. Both HIS and Sapphire are respectable aftermarket brands, among others.

Your first generation Phenom processor is going to drag your performance to a screeching halt in really crowded places regardless of your video card, though. But to replace that would require most of a new PC (processor, motherboard, RAM at the least). The new video card will at least get you past the game's minimum requirements.

This one is better http://us.ncix.com/p...US&promoid=1033
7770 $100  Depending on your power supply.

Also this would be a good processor upgrade check your motherboard CPU suport list you might need a BIOS update.

Or cheaper but still better than you have.

Now if it was me and had $100 with that PC I would go this way. This would put you well over the min specs and be playable except large WVW and large events.
Check the motherboard and BIOS version see if it will suport this( or just list the exact motherboard and BIOS version and I'll look it up)
