Well all you need is something that can use direct X9.0 so cheap cards will work fine. I like either of these depending on your favored price. The difference in model doesn't sound like a lot but the 7600GT is much better than the 7300GT.

Geforce 7300GT 256mb $55 - $20 mail in rebate.
Newegg.com - CHAINTECH VGA256C-SE73GT GeForce 7300GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Geforce 7600GT 256mb $90 - $15 mail in rebate.
Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Also the Geforce 7600GT one is apparently high quality since it has really good reviews (75% of 650 people gave it a 5, 15% gave it a 4) and won a customer choice award.

Meanwhile the 7300GT one is only $35 after the rebate!

Regardless they can both run Team Fortress 2.

Those are pretty old cards though. I would get at least a x1950pro

Who cares how old they are? He only wants to run TF2. If he wants to spend $125 then yeah I have better ones I would recommend but I don't think it needed in this case.

Maybe he has that kind of money to spend but I don't know a lot of people who want to spend $100+ on a graphics card. With the exception of anyone on here.
