  1. I built a computer on a budget with:

    Mainboard : Dell 0ND237
    Chipset : Intel i945G/GZ
    Processor : Intel Pentium 4 650 @ 3400MHz
    Physical Memory : 3072MB
    Video Card : Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family
    Hard Disk : Western Digital WD800JD-75MSA1 (80GB)
    DVD-Rom Drive : Toshiba-Samsung CDRWDVD TS-H492C
    Monitor Type : Tatung V37NCGE - 37 inches
    Network Card : Broadcom BCM5751 NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet PCIe
    DirectX : Version 9.0c (May 2010)

    I have looked around for 200 and below and found a

    HIS H577FK1GD Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity

    this one is on newegg for 140 but what do you recomend

    I'm guessing you have an Optiplex GX620? Your PSU will be the limiting factor here; is it the 305W supply or the 280W one? You can check the sticker located on the PSU itself for confirmation.

    if you FURTHER plan to build a new computer system based on newer intel/amd processors, then use that 5770, otherwise you can save money by using ati 4670 1 gb ddr3...
