Default GPU for freind

my friend has a nvidia 6200SE 64mb GPU currently and wants to play unreal tournament 3, call of duty 4 etc but dosnt want to spend too much, so far we've come up with:

Novatech GeForce 8400GS 256MB DDR2 HDTV PCI-E Graphics Card : nov-84gs

Novatech GeForce 7600GS 256MB DDR2 SLI, DVI, VGA, PCI-E : nov-76gs

any recomendations in the £30-£40 price range using Computer Supplies from Novatech

7600GS. UT3 is meant to run on low grade systems believe it or not. They where going for the very popular thing the Source engine had going for them. You can play it on basicaly anything. CoD4, well i cant exactly say much with it. I havent played around with it to much yet.

7600GS has overclocking room to a 7600GT level, just look out for that.
