Default Looking for low end gpu (budget=$50)

hey guys,
my upstairs computer has an ati x600 and its really ******.
I know i cant do much with 50 bucks, but im looking on ebay and see if i can snipe a deal, even if its used im ok with that.
Im wondering how the 8400 or 8500 will be, and if i can get it for about 50bucks, is it worth it.
i got a fsp 450w psu so thats good.
I may look into going dual core with that cpu since i can get a s939 cpu for about 50-60 bucks and then maybe another stick of ram would complete that pc.
its not mine, i built it, well kinda for my parents and sis. My sis likes playing light games like virtua tennis and some mystery games.

thanks.

8400...,.no way.

8500gt should do very light gaming...but it still really sucks.

Keep an eye out for:

-7800GT
-7600GT
