Default New AMD System *Video card*

I recently perchased a AMD BArebones system for every day things. I bought Corsair 512Mb 64X64 VSDDR400 Cor RT Ram. And recieved a Cd-rw Drive from a friend. My next thing i want is a video card followed by a HD. I have a price range for the video card of $62.00. I Do not have much Money to spend at this point but will upgrade in the next few month. I need help finding a Graphic's card for SOME gamin (Cs) and Internet searching. I am going to buy a 80gig HD for $70 (Wd).
I Found two video cards that were in my price range tell me if they are good thanks.

1.) this computer can handle less-graphic games such as guild wars, starcraft, warcraftIII, diabloII, WoW, FFXI, CS 1.6 (not source), battlefield 1942 (not sure about this), etc. it won't handle anything higher (well..maybe...on very low quality) <---due to your budget on the gfx card
2.) although those cards you listed seem ok, (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102409) that card would be much better if you push your budget just a little bit (it might even be able to play more gfx heavy games on lower settings)
