Default Budget Video Card Suggestion?

A friend of mine has a pentium4 3.2ghz with 2gb ram computer that he wants to be able to play cod4 on (and other games of similar graphical-intensity).

Recommend a pci-e card no more than $50? The cheaper the better.

HD 4650 probably.

Newegg.com - POWERCOLOR AX4650 512MD2-LHV2 Radeon HD 4650 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

I'd recommend checking out various sites for used cards.

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
