Needing a new video card. Best band for buck?

I bought a new game for the PC and found that somehow I only have a 128mb video card (game requires at least 256).

What is the best I can do in the 50-100 range?

Thanks!

This is a decent card, from a great company (the best IMO)

and if you want a little more performance than that...

I have used many different brands, and Evga is by far my favorite.

Cheap? The two above.

you guys are listing pci-E cards, it looks like he has a PCI card.

Do us a favor, and run GPU-Z

post a screen shot of the program. And give us the model of your Motherboard. If you don't know, run cpu-z and check the "mainboard tab"
