If I buy this for my computer

Diamond ATI Radeon HD 3450 PCI Express 512MB GDDR2 Video Card

will that run the game the way it was intended?
I picked up a SAPPHIRE 100253HDMI Radeon HD 4650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card back in February, and you can see how it looks by some of my screenshots. Before that, I just used the basic Intel HD Graphics chip that came with my computer. The graphics weren't that great (no shadows, reflects, anti-aliasing, etc) but the game was playable. Since I upgraded, I've noticed a huge difference in the quality of the graphics.

I would imagine that the card you specified should allow you to play the game they way it was intended. It's far better than the onboard graphics chip.
