What is the cheapest graphics card I can buy to render Windows Aero under Windows 7? Bearing in mind I don't play games, except maybe Machinarium, which is flash based.

For instance, would this do?

My onboard graphics is pitiful & will not render Aero.

Or maybe this:

Should render Aero & a bit more? 26.60 + shipping charges.

This card is fine to render Aero on Windows 7.
