Default old video cards?

If anyone would be willing to donate an old video card i would really appreciate it. all i need is something to get my new comp. up and running for audio production and ill be buying a 7800gt in a couple when i can afford it.

if you have a junk card lying around that you would be willing to get rid of just let me know. Thanks!

Hate to break it to you, but there is no "old" Pci-Express cards, they all cost over 90 dollars, so I doubt anyone can donate, unless they are really kind-hearted.

You can also get a really cheap PCI video card.

Also, here is a PCIe video card for $45:
