Seriously iampoor, your parents do not need a dedicated video card. I'm guessing that you're going to be useing XP on their new machine so in that case 1GB will be perfectly fine, even if the onboard GPU ends up useing 128MB of it. Most video cards in your budget use turbo cache anyway, so your argument that you want one so as to now waste RAM is a little silly. At the end of the day, my crappy old Northwood 2.0Ghz would run XP fine with only 512MB of RAM, don't replace onboard with something that isn't any better.

actually that ther gb of ram would be 40$ not 20$ (the ram I'm getting has a rebate).

Also they want a dedicated video card

EDIT:

They also want it for vista and the ability to add a second monitor.

They also want it because you know the occasional old game willl need something abit better .

I am fully aware o why/why not they needed it.

And I was trying to find this one that I found that was 15$ shipped new

I'd try to talk them out of it. If they don't plan on running games, then there is really no need (Its not like a $10 GFX card would be able to run games, anway). It would be a waste of time, and money.

My parents P4 530J (3.0ghz), and crappy 915P chipset with intel integrated graphics runs pretty much every application just fine. It even runs CS 1.6 decently.

yah I've sorta been debating whenther to do it or not....

It was more like if I could get one for 15$ shipped I would but otherwise no

So I probablly will not.

You are, but we aren't. We need full details before we can give you good suggestions.

You mentioned vista as a possablility, then you should be looking at a 2000 or 8 series for the DX10

Then in that case, you're statement that 2GB being unnecessary is far off the mark. I've been useing Vista since before its official release and I'm telling you that it will be a very good idea to invest in 2GB of RAM.

You haven't got a clue sunshine. You intend to only use 1GB of main system RAM on Vista? That's a definate no-no, and your parents will see more benefit from 2GB of RAM instead of a 7300, or similar card. Intel's integrated 950 GPU is perfectly capable at playing games like Far Cry and Unreal Tournament 2004.

I think you'd be doing your parents a favour by useing onboard graphics for now. You can always save up and add a much better dedicated video card at a later date.
