By decently, what settings were you hoping for ?

You could pick up anything with an ATI Radeon HD 3200 or Nvidia GeForce 8200 integrated graphics processor if you're fine with low settings; they can do playable framerates @ 1280x800 on Low. Most of these units are in the $500 - $700 range.

However, if you're hoping for Medium settings, you'll probably want to look for something with an HD 3650 or 9600M GT graphics processor in it. These will likely start around $800. I'm not going to do your shopping for you, though :P
