Looking to buy a replacement for a busted NVIDIA 7300

yotesyotes Registered User regular
I'm fixing up an older computer that just blew up its old dusty shitty GPU.

Pentium Dual Core 2160, some MicroATX ASUS motherboard, no-name PSU with 6 or 8 A on 12V rails.

Criteria:

PCI-e
No extra PEG power plug required
Hopefully better than a four year old 7300, just needs to play NFS Carbon at 1024*768
VGA output
CHEAP (<$60)

So far I'm looking at DAAMIT Radeon 5550s, 5570s and/or NVIDIA 210, 220s.

If anyone has any better advice, please let me know.

    Hit newegg.com, I wouldn't dream of building or repairing something without shopping there 1st. You'll find affordable video cards there, and the review system is great and useful. Ch€€rš!

    Thanks, but Newegg isn't of very much use to me since I currently am in Thailand. All I have is a bunch of local shops to compare prices at.

    Anything would be better than what you have. How much is a 5570 for you?

    I have a Gainward GeForce 9500GT 512MB that I can send you, if you like. This one -

    Edit - Actually, I might be using that card for my media pc at some point. I have yet another card free - a much better card. A Club3D GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB, if you want it. Still plays all the latest games with no problem at all.

    ...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.

    I managed to get $60, not including $20 shipping, for one of my old EVGA 8800GT 512s a few days ago on eBay. And being a cheap bastard grad student, that's a lot of money, otherwise I'd offer one of those.
