    I Need a cheap but somewhat decent GPU for an extreme budget build that I am doing for a family member. Has to be able to play some games at 1280X1024. If anybody has something that will fit my budget let me know ASAP please. Thanks

    That could work, I would like to see some more offers first though okay? I am thinking something possibly a little more powerful than an 8400 but I am not sure what all I can get in this price range :(

    I Have this sitting on my desk right now and I don't have a use for it. I'm not sure if it will play in the settings that you mentioned but shipping is all I'm asking;)

    I'm afraid all I have are AGP cards.

    Well my niece wants to play The Sims 3, not sure about my Nephew but I think just some small steam games at most.

    Let me know how much shipping is to 97058 bog :)

    If only I could find an 8500GT or an 8600 that would last a little longer for them, even a 7600 and up. Which I am sure is asking a lot for this price.

    Oh I see, I see the 7900GT is your FS thread, friday I might have some more money and I might be able to get that. I think it would give their system a little more life :)

    Damn, Bog's tempting me with those cards!

    I have the x800XL in Rig4 in my sig. I'm replacing it with the 9600GSO I have sitting right next to me, I just haven't had a reason to actually do it. I say $1+Shipping.

    Which one?.....I know the Xtreme gets really toasty (hence the aftermarket cooler).
