Default Urgent!!! Need A Gfx Card Asap

Hey guys,

A lot of you know about my new build comming tomorrow.
The old pc is going up stairs, and i just realized that the mobo does NOT have onboard video.

So i just need a video card, nothing fancy or expensive AT ALL.

Its just for my mom,dad and sis...they wont be using it for gaming at all.

I have no idea what kind of card i should get or whats the cheapest.
The mobo is a Foxconn NF4UK8AA-EKRS
I need to get this ASAP

Thanks...
