i think giancarlo has one that he can recommend, but i don't remember what it is
edit: if i remember correctly i think it was made by general electric or something like that and it was $10, but the pics were pretty darn good

my brother got the exact same one for $90, and it played ok, not too great, but the only games he played was Rome and TOCA racing, so i don't know how well it actually performs; With Rome, he had some considerable lag, so its not a great card, but i guess you can consider it ok
