Default Video Card for Friend.

Hey guys, I was just wondering if any of you can recommend a good

video card for my friend.

He just needs it to play Counter-Strike : Source and sports games and

stuff like that, not that many hardcore graphic games...

Thx in advance...

Budget is : $100 - $120 CAD.

Try and get a 7600GT if you can afford it but a 7600GS should suffice. I'd go with the BFG also though if he can't afford a 7600GT.

Yeah, 7600GT seems a bit out of his price range. Either of those cards would be fine.
