Help with which graphics card to buy to play Guild Wars 2

Okay, here's the story - I am using my old, crappy computer for the time being as I've sent my current rig away to be repaired. However, It's estimated that I won't get my computer back till early October! *grinds teeth* That said, I'm currently using my old DELL Optiplex 755 SFF. It's specs are as follows: Core 2 Duo 2.3Ghz, 4GB RAM (DDR2), 160GB hard drive, and Windows XP Home. It doesn't have a graphics card, so I'm here to ask for anyone's advice on which one to buy for this system? In saying that, I don't want to have to buy an expensive graphics card. I'm looking for something inexpensive, somewhere along the lines of the X1800, which is the minimum graphical requirement to run Guild Wars 2. Any recommendations will be very helpful!

Please keep in mind that I realise that this is not the optimal system specs to be running Guild Wars 2. It is a temporary situation until I get my computer back. So, I plan on setting everything to low - med, and the resolution to 1024x768.

Thank you all in advance.
