Default AGP Video Card..

So my dad and brother's computers are not very good...but they nor I have the money to buy new...I want to get them each new video cards so that they can play COD5 at least on low settings with a decent framerate. They are both old Dell's (most likely with bad PSU) and I would like them to cost $100 or less each. Specs are below:

Dad's PC:
P4 @2.0 ghz
1Gig Ram
ATI Radeon 9800

Bro's PC:
P4@ 3.0ghz
1gig Ram
ATI Radeon 9550

Here is a newer AGP card. Under $100 and you'd be able to play CoD5 on better than low settings. I've read around and a lot of people are running this card on 300w PSU's so you might be in the clear as far as that goes. - SAPPHIRE 100238L Radeon HD 3650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Thats my video card lol. Other then the different clocked VRAM, its still the same core.

That card should be able to handle games like COD4 no problems what so ever (at lower resolutions). While newer games like COD5 will still be playable on a card like that.
