It doesn't just depend on the graphics card, it depends on your processor and RAM too. Are they up to scratch? It also matters what else you are running - Anti-virus is very important, as some AV programs impose a very heavy load on the system.

You will only get a very basic card at this price point - that's the real world I'm afraid - and all the wishing in the world won't change that.

However - official minimum system requirements click here

and there's even a checkout on the page for your system.

According to that you can play the game with a 9250. That dosn't necessariy mean play it well in the highest detail settings, with all the bells and whistles.

Here's all Misco PCI cards click here - The PNY GeF 5500 looks like a real bargain to me at that price.

The only way you'll really find out is if you try it. The Activision site says yes, so I guess we should believe them eh?

But probably not brilliantly - for that you would likely need a significantly better card - but I cannot know for sure.

What graphics card do you have now? - or is it on-board graphics?

If a PCI card (as opposed to PCI Express) is what you need then you are going to be limited on what is available
click here seems to be the best I can find that stand any chance of running DOOM 3 bu don't expect top notch performance.
