For what use? Gaming? If so, then no.
For that price and if you want it for gaming - look on Trademe and get second hand. You'd need at least a 6800GS if not better.

Don't take a look at it. Its from SuperCheap Computers for a start. That is Super-We Don't Give any Warranty and Couldn't Care Less Computers.

The 7300GS performance is far below that of a 6600GT wich I now consider the minimun spec for medium level plus gaming. The 512Mb may sound good but I would much rather have a faster GPU with less ram (256mb).

If you want a decent upgrade card, don't go cheap as you will only be dissapointed and end up ditching it. Buy a Nvidia 6600Gt or above or ATI x1600 or above, these really are the minimun now, anything below is a waste of time and money.
