    I would like to be able to play Portal 2, Mirror's Edge, and other similar games on high(not max) settings. My budget would be around $50.

    I don't think you can get a graphics card that can run those on high for 50 bucks.

    At least not Portal 2

    What about medium-high graphics?

    I got a Nvidia GTX 260 by MSI for $70 on ebay.

    It also depends on what CPU you have, but unless you have at least a high end intel Dual Core or a AMD Quad, there is nothing that will run those types of games in your budget.
