Looking for affordable graphics card


I'm looking for a graphics card for my PC but don't know what's compatible to it.
I have a core i3 2100, intel dh61ww motherboard and 4gb ram. I occasionally play games , watch and convert videos.
I'm also on a limited budget so the most I can spend is around $50 or 2000 Philippine pesos.

Hope you don't get real intensive with the games under budget about the best is this: - GIGABYTE GV-R645SL-1GI Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
It needs a 400 watt power supply.....

A little over budget gets a much stronger card: - PowerColor AX5570 1GBD3-H Radeon HD 5570 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
Again a 400 watt power supply....

As listed above all you need is a PCI-E Graphics card.

If you could link us to what is available to you, then we could help you decide.

Thanks Fabe

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, & Mac OS X 10.9.2

I can't see either offering a huge amount more performance over integrated graphics.

Thanks Ivan, your response gives me a better idea of what I should be looking for.
Fabe, I'll list the cards that I see here the next time I post. I haven't had enough time to go online with the holidays approaching.

Thanks for all your responses. Happy holidays!
