Hi,

Trying to get a cheap video card for the gf to play diablo 3 without significant lag issues. I'm pretty sure she has onboard graphics (HD3200). The motherboard details are RS780-SB700 but the manufacturer field on cpuz is blank so not sure if the motherboard has a pci-x slot.

So two questions;
-does the RS780-SB700 have a pci-x?
-if so, what is best <$100 (or less) vid card 





Other parts include an AMD x3 8450 & 2gb ram

1. It's a 780G chipset, it will definitely have a PCI-X slot (I know, cause I have one)

2. for sub $100, you are not going to get the greatest performance, but here are two that's about $100:

I would HIGHLY recommend stretching your budget just a little bit and go for either one of these:

Hope that helps.
