Building a PC for my sister, so far has an E5200(OCed) with a P5Q-EM mobo.

Looking for a cheap gfx card under $100 for her, just for the occasional game or two.

Cheers

have a look through Acents price list (http://www.ascent.co.nz/Category.aspx?majorcatID=64) - depending on Brand you can pick up a 8400 or 9400 for around the $100 mark - give or take.

Ok-What do you reckon?

3450 or the 8400?

I'd go for the 3450 because it supports HDMI. Both won't be able to play the most recent games much, but any difference in the games they can handle is probably negligible.

It just needs to be able to handle games like "Janes Hotel" etc.

Just those child games. And maybe some old games.

The 8400GS is 66 bucks at elive so I've gone for that one:D

Thanks All
