Default Which video card?

Ok I've made up my mind and I want to buy this computer:

AMD Sempron 3000+
512MB DDR
120GB HDD
DVD-ROM
CD-RW Combo
Flash Media Reader
10/100Mbps LAN
Windows XP Home

I want to play some games on this computer. I was looking at newegg.com for video cards but I just dont know which brand to pick.

Video card I want:

NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 ***OR*** ATI Radeon 8500 or greater.
**Budget** $90 and BELOW

If anyone could go on the newegg site and help me search which video card would be the best to suit this system thanks!

Well are you AGP or PCI-E for number one, not all graphics cards will work. And if this is a crappy propertiary rubbish (Dell, Emachines, Gateway) make sure you actually have an AGP or PCI-E slot.


Anyways it's a refurb, but a steal

That is a damn steal Chris posted, I would go with that.

As far as I know Dell doesn't offer AMD's so it has to be some other POS propertiary company.
