Default Small GPU question

Alright so, with a budget of £50, does anyone want to suggest a GPU? for light gaming only really and just to tide over till early next year.

I was looking at the 1650Pro but I'm a bit clueless unless its over £150

For games like Warhammer, KoTOR, and possibly the orange box set if it can be pushed.

an X1650Pro should do you well, or a 7600GT, I have no clue about your prices though.. aren't your prices super high over there in... wherever? (England? I mean, there are other nations that use pounds for currency, so I'm not sure)

edit// aha, here we go, I just did a search on your website and probably the best deal in your price range is an X1950GT:
Ebuyer - Cheap Computers, Laptops, Digital Cameras, TVs & more!

or the 7900GS:

I had a 1650pro and it played kotor fine and worked well in world of warcraft, didnt really play much else on it as i only used it for about 6 months before replacing it with my current machine.

The 8600gt you will have to push the boat out slightly as its £70

I recommend this retailer for there after service care:
Kustom PCs Asus GF8600GT Silent PCI-E 256Mb Graphics Card
