"That is a pretty old graphics card, ATI now have x1800's and such, so it will not be able to play new games, but will be able to play the old one's fine."

heh, yes it only costs like a grand. which is what.. 30% more than the computer he wnats to buy? what kind of games are you looking foward to playing.. list some please. i'll let you know if the x300 can handle it.. right now , my best guess is NO no matter what. lol

Wait, you are saying it will NOT be able to play games?

It will play halo fine, my dad's Geforce 2 mx 400 can play that lol.

Is it the original counter strike or Counter Strike: source you want to play?

It will play the origianl no problems at all, and considering half-life 2 will play at 36 fps I think you may just get away with source (depending on your internet connection of course).

Not sure about the others

What would be a moderately priced good upgrade from the current graphics card?

hmm... i'd say it will play those games within a margin... i wouldnst suggest the x300.. at LEAST the x600 pro should be installed on that.. or just pitch in a little bit of money for a 64 meg card.. i'll come back to this post, let me do some research
