Question Finding The Next Stepping Stone

Firstly, if this is in the wrong place - which I hope it isn't - I do apologise seeing as it's my first post.

Anyway. I'm looking for some help.

I recently bought - with my 300/480 CAD budget - a custom built PC with low-end specs so to speak. I later purchased a low-end graphics card just to keep my occupied with games and to boost the performance a little. The card I bought has already been reviewed by Linus: the ATI Radeon HD 5450.

My Specs --
Windows 7 Enterprise
AMD Athlon II X2 250, 3,0GHz
1TB HDD memory
ATI Radeon HD 5450, 1GB
Now I understand that AMD and ATI are said to be a bad combination and I've had several comments on my GPU and so forth.

I want to purchase quite a budgeted graphics card that is 1GB DDR3 and has a VGA connection (my monitor being a VGA-only - HP w1907v). Is there anything out there on the market that will support such requirements (VGA, DDR3, 1GB) as well as offer an improved experience in comparison to the 5450 for a cheap(ish) price?
