Default video card

I'd like to find a good video card for my new computer that's not too expensive. I'd say anything up to 90 bucks. It'll be mainly for light to moderate gaming. Maybe a little photo gallery too since I have a digital camera. Any help would be nice.

Go check NewEgg. They have a price sorter and have really good deals.

Good luck

Radeon 9200 definitely fits the bill for decent gaming performance and excellent 2D quality.

I think that's what I've decided on but I don't know if I should get the 9200 or 9200se. Opinions?

I would suggest the Asus Radeon 9600SE. At Newegg.com it cost $98.99 Not bad for a decent card would be perfect for what you want to do with it.
