Question Help! Need Graphics Card Advice.

Ok im upgrading my old XP desktop witch after this upgrade will have windows 7, my budget is around 150 - 170 max and So far I have This....
Asrock N68C-S UCC GeForce 7025 Socket AM2+ VGA Out 6.. |


AMD Athlon II X4 640 Socket AM3 3GHz 2MB L2 Cache.. |


EXTRA VALUE 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz Memory Kit 1.5V CL9 |


Black 500W PSU - With 12cm Blue LED Fan 20+4pin 1x.. |

This comes to 157.49 the only thing that must not be changed on this list is the processor. also i will definitely need a new psu with 1x pci-e 16x (for graphics card) and at least 4x molex and 20 x 4 pin.

I am looking for the cheapest Graphics card that will be able to run black ops on low - medium settings.

Any Help Would be appreciated.
PS. All parts must be from ebuyer.

I've noticed a huge mistake. The motherboard has the socket AM2 and the CPU is an AM3, either change the CPU or the motherboard. Everything else is fine.

No, am3 will work in an am2+ mobo.

Even on the approved list:
