Default Video card

Can any one reccomend a decent video card in the $30-$40 range? (Used obviously)

Something like this SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6450 1GB PCI Express Video Card (100322L) - Newegg.com, What will you be using the card for?

Windows still wouldn't be able to make full use of that 4GB, It reserves some and some is put towards helping the GPU out, This shall explain The usable memory may be less than the installed memory on Windows 7-based computers

Any card would beat integrated graphics. Be sure to what you find in that storage locker..

my grandma said there was a pretty tall computer in there probably like 3-4 feet tall and pretty wide so I'm guessing it was a server of some sort so I'm hoping it has pretty big HDD's that I can use at the least we'll find out tomorrow I'm kind of excited hopefully I find some good stuff and it's not all outdated

Most of the old parts I've gotten have been old but still usable, I did a clean out 2 weeks ago. I recently got a half decent PC for a free, The laptop I am using now I got for free when the owner claimed it didn't worked, I took it home and plugged the charger in and away she want, You'll see the specs in my profile..
