    I'm not sure if you're from the US, but...

    I think the GF4 MX 440 (the 64MB one is a lot cheaper and almost exactly as fast as the 128MB) would suit your needs. That will keep you under $45. Next most expensive (but still affordable at under $65) is the Geforce FX 5200. If you're willing to go a little higher, I recommend the Geforce 4 Ti 4200.

    The GF4 MX 440 will be nearly all your processor will handle anyway, so it's probably the best choice.

    i have a TnT2 Pro card i could sell ya, but i wont.. it isnt much of a change from the savage card, which is the card i upgraded from. they pretty much both suck. :)

    how much are you willing to spend.. $50? $100?

    look into a Radeon 9200, or a 9000 Pro, or even maybe a 9600 non-pro....

    A GF4 Ti4200 would probably work nicely
