Default Cheap Video Card

My friend just bought a new computer and is looking for a sub $100 PCI-E card something for mild gaming and so he can get off intergrated. I was thinking maybe a 7300GS?

under $100 7300GS sounds fine, it may not run the most intensive games on maximum mind you, but it will get the job done.

Get the 7300GT instead, it kills the 7300GS.

Yeah if you're on a budget of under $100 then either the 7300GT or 7300GS will serve you well. Although like Mad Larkin said, don't expect all that much.
