So I have a friend that is in the middle of an upgrade, but she's got very little money, her family were nice enough to get her a 939 Althon X2 and more RAM, but now she's in need of a better graphics card. As she is still using a 7300 GS. :shadedshu

Anything that would be a upgrade for her is welcome, but I don't think she'd be able to be able to pay for much more than shipping. Maybe a tad more. I was thinking maybe having her save for a 9500GT. But I don't know how long that would take her.

A note to those out there with cards. She only uses a 17" so she doesn't need a super overkill card or anything.

Sorry Bot, but the cards in her price range you have for sale aren't much of a upgrade, and the good cards are too costly for her small budget.

tell her to save... no point in buying something that isnt much of an upgrade... and no point in rushing to buy pc parts, their not going anywhere and theyll only get cheaper.

Honestly guys she can probably only afford $20-$40 at this point.

As for the power supply, I'm unsure, but I'll know later today as I'm going over to her place to help her with the parts she got yesterday.

I've seen 7900GS's in the $25 range for sale, typically you can get them for as low as $20 though.
