I do understand you...the point is that your folks won't need a strong card. They probably don't need a i7-9XX configuration but will have it too
if you have an older card laying around just put it there until you think of upgrading your present graphics card, and then put the old one in their system. What do you think? Or buy a HD5750 and when you upgrade offer it to a relative whos into gaming or so.

the wattage thing is that the HD5500 series graphics cards are very eco friendly and power efficient
I need upgrades

Ended up getting the sapphire 5570 for $60 something at microcenter... I'll take it.
