Default need some advice on new videocard

so i would like to play minecraft, league of legends on reasonable graphics, and good fps, what videocard do u guys recommend? my budget is around 100 euro or so


videocard; Intel HD Graphics 2500
motherboard; H61M-P31
processor; Intel core i5-3330 CPU @ 3.00 Ghz
4 gigs of ram
1 tb harddisk
windows 7 64 bit

i posted on minecraft forums allready and they suggested a radeon 7750
what do u guys think? heres a pic of my expansion slot computer - Imgur
the slot on the bottom left of the pic is 10,5 centimeters.
the power is 500 watt peak, so will this videocard be good in my pc and no weird things going to happen?

7750 or 7770. 650ti, whatever is in your budget. You won't be maxing games out but you'll get a lot better FPS at lower settings.
