Definitely, to be honest, I didn't look for anything else on there, since I'm not used to the site, lol.

With that card, all those games should run flawlessly.

The 3650 is actually worse than the 3850. Plus, it's AGP, you need PCI-E

Edit: Wait, do you have a PCI-E slot on your motherboard?

Oh yeah, you have a PCI-E slot. Grab the 4670, it will be your best bet for those and future games.

Quoted For Truth

Don't get the 3650, it has issues running games @1280x1024. It is not meant to be a gaming card. But the 4670 will slaughter games @1280x1024.

I found another card which is 1 more than the Sapphire 4670. It's in the ATI 4670 range but made by Force3D. Would I be better off getting this

Force3D HD 4670 1GB DDR3 Dual DVI TV Out PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer

than this

Sapphire HD 4670 512MB GDDR3 VGA DVI HDMI HDCP PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer ?
