Hello,
I just buy a new PC and it comes with an integrated Intel HD, so I want to buy a new graphic card.
I was thinking about one Nvidia GT 440 1GB Ddr3
Is this good enough?
CPU: Intel i3 2.93 Ghz
Board:Intel Tom Cove DH55TC
Ram:2Gb ddr3
Power suplly: 350W
 
Solution
You'd be good with an HD 5670/6670, and you wouldn't have to upgrade your PSU.

If you want more power, a 400-500w PSU with an HD 6850 will work well for all games on high settings.

yeah,he should definetly upgrade his PSU if wants play at that resolution with max settings and 2gb ram is enough but i recommend 4gb ram,if his i3 cpu is quad core then wouldn't need to upgrade the cpu but if it's dual core then i might think it should be upgraded

and if he's running gta-4 on max settings and 1680 x 1050 or 1980 x 1020 res.He obviously need a very powerful desktop and as i know everyone is saying that gta-4 is poorly coded,so i don't recommend playing that game on ultra high settings and resolutions like that.

Well, first of all, thank you for all your replies, so:
1) I'm not a serious gamer, just casual
2) I want to buy a new GPU just for one game in particular: Diablo 3 because I'm a serious fan of the series, and also I just want it to run smoothly, not at maximum settings
3)I also want to edit some videos, nothing too professional
4) My budget is about 250-350 dollars (keep in mind, I don't live in the USA and the parts will be a little bit more expensive because of the taxes)
Thank you all
