    If you can find 6800GT 256mb for $100 I'd recommend that :) Its what I have currently and it runs most games reasonably well at 1024x768 resolution

    ATI X1650 Radion.min/256 memory.
    But you need a bigger pws.400 minimum,for more then this to perform.
    Theres also your monitor to consider.Is it CRT or LCD with DVI-D
    connection.The 1650 does.

    1. with the psu you mentioned, it is obvious you have an old system. Before buying anything else, consider that it would be wiser to buy or build a new system. throwing money into an ancient or older system is not really a smart move. You can build a very good system for $500 or less and even salvage some old parts.

    Best Buy and CircuitCity are usually ripoffs as far as PCs go. Your best bet would be to order components online and build your own PC. You'd be getting experience and saving money as well. It's your call.
