    well there are options for a card in your budget but dont expect to play these games on high settings or resolution.there is ati radeon 9000 or 9200 or nvidia geforce 3,4,mx 400,fx 5200 or geforce 4 ti.if you can find one.the hard part would not be finding one in your budget but tracking one down from a shop or a website-cruise around, check newegg,circuitcity and other etailers to find a good deal in your budget.you can post your possible candidates and i can advise you to choose one that would be right for you.

    I advise not getting anything below the FX 5600 for nVIDIA or anything lower that then Raedon 9600.

    I've had lots of experiance with these 2 cards and both will play HL 2 perfectly well as long as they are running alongside a good CPU and RAM.

    You wont get anything for under $60 that will play anything decently.

    If u cant play a game on its high to max settings then IMO, I wouldent bother playing it.
