The neat part here is you are starting with that 5450. That card is fine. It should run that game but most want more.
Here's the list -> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107.html
You can pick from that list in the price range and then see if you have enough Amperes and Watts in your PSU. You didn't supply the PSU rating so I can't comment.
Hey all, I have a 2 year old pc with decent specs but nothing special when it comes to the video card. I'm looking to upgrade so that I can play Diablo 3 on decent settings. I am not sure which video card is in my range ($50-100) and would be compatible with my PC, and/or if I need to upgrade my power supply first. Below are my specs. Any help would be appreciated!
