Default Graphics Card

I'm looking for a decent graphics card for my pc. Must be PCI (not express) and would like to be under $75. I've been looking at a GeForce 5500 ($83 from newegg), but it's abit out of my price range. Help plz

Old Specs:
Intel Celeron D 2.8Ghz
80G Seagate Baracuda 7200.7
GeForce FX5500 (PCI) OCed to 300/500
am I missing anything?


Now: Toshiba Sattelite L35-S2161 running Ubuntu :)

Fx5200 better then the 9250, though the MX4000 looks around the same too

If you can't find the extra bucks go with 5200, easy choice. Don't go with the MX4000 they aren't going to help you out with any games now....

The FX 5200 is DX9 and has large enough memory amounts to help a bit.
There are only Two things in life i regret doing... 1. Selling my Soul for Cash.... 2. Buying a Compaq.... I should have kept the Cash, huh.
