Looking for a cheap, low power card for my youngest daughter's first computer. Would like it to run cool, quiet, but still be capable of running most modern games on at least medium settings. Maybe something like a GT430 or 5750. LMK what you have, and what you want for it. Not looking to spend more than $60-$70. Thanks!

Got some gts 450 lying around. Could sell for 70 Can$ plus whatever shipping cost. Pm me if interested. Require only one 6 pin pci-e and they've got adapters. And they're double slot, and cool.
