I have a Lenovo H430-2558-1ZU desktop PC that I would like to upgrade the graphics in. I am looking for something better than the Intel HD Graphics 2000 that is built into the Core i3-2120 processor. It has a power supply that is somewhere between 280w and 300w, I can't find a definitive answer. The HD 2000 graphics play all the games I want it to play fine for the most part, but I want something more. I play Garry's Mod, Left 4 Dead 2, The Sims 3, SimCity (the latest one), Splinter Cell Conviction, and more on this computer. I also tried to run the Project Spark beta on this machine and the HD 2000 can barely handle it. So, what is a good gaming card I can put in this machine? I would really like something that does not require external power, and is under $100. Even if it's an older card, as long as it's better than the Intel HD Graphics 2000, I don't really care.
