Default Which graphics card should I get

Hi everybody, I'm new to the forum and its my first post. So I'm sorry if I put this post in the wrong section.

Anyways, my system currently have integrated graphics and I'm thinking of buying a dedicated card from my friend. I don't really play much games, but just watch a couple of movies once in a while and my friend offered me 3 options for graphics card. He asked if I wanted a Geforce 210 or Geforce 9500 or Geforce 7800. All of them are 20 bucks each. Which one should I go with for best performance?

Go with the 7800 did a quick benchmark search on it and it has the best returns.

If you're just watching movies and playing a few games, i'd go with the GT210. It will run cooler and use much less power than the 7800 and the 9500 and play your movies just fine.

Aces makes a good point. I was just looking at power and if you aren't going to use it no reason to use more resources.
