This thread looks familiar.... like the one in the Internal Hardware section. Anyway, an $80 card is not going to be the best, but it will handle many older games. In order to provide suggestions, we need to know more about your PC. What is your PC's power supply and how many watts does it have? Are standard PCI slots the only ones your PC has?
