Mine crapped out on me, my birthday is coming up soon, mommy dearest said she will spend no more than 100 American Dollars on my birthday gift. Wanted to see if i could get a decent card for around that price.

Specs

Intel Core i5 CPU 650 3.20 ghz
6 gigs ram 64 bit OS
ATI Radeon HD 4500

Any suggestions?

From what I can see, a GTS 450 is right around $100 and probably would run the game Ok... Not sure about the card you mentioned because I can't find a Radeon HD 4500 anywhere... just a 4530....

you might be able to find a ati/amd radeon hd6770 or nvidia gtx 550ti at or around 100$ after rebate.

The best I can think of for that low of price range is 10 dollars more than 100. It is the AMD Radeon HD 6770. This card will max the game at about 45 to 60 FPS. I had this card before I realized I payed 80 dollars more than it should have been at bestbuy and returned it. But here is a link to newegg if you want one. It is XFX brand:

Forgot to mention, some of the cards that I listed in that link are actually as low as 85 bucks with a rebate.

I little update.

Mom's going away on business during my birthday, so what I assume to be a "sorry I can't be there for your birthday" gesture she gave me 300 bucks and called it a day.

I don't plan on spending the whole thing on a Card, so if anyone knows one around 150 give me a heads up.
