My friend's birthday is coming up. He wants a video card upgrade but he's limited in $. He currectly has a Geforce 4 MX 440 i think. Can you guys recommend him a good video card that can at least run Doom 3 and HL2 on the lowest quality? Much is appreciated...

GeForce 4 Ti4400 or 4600 if you can still buy one, maybe a 9700 non pro if not? 6200 if it comes out on AGP or the X300 are also possibilities, but probably not much improvement over an MX440

Get a 6600 AGP or a 5900XT off of newegg.com they r NICE!
NOTe that the 6600AGP won't be available till the end of this month.
If u really need a cheap card that is really good but not perfect for under $110.
Go on newegg.com and order a 256 mb 5700LE by chaintech. THey r preety good

ya, COULD buy a 5700LE 256mb for pretty cheap, but with the lack of processing power on it, along with the lack of pipeslines.. well it just looks like a good deal on the box, when its in your case... well thats another story..
If your on a limited budget you could just search Ebay or Supershopper. They usually have good deals in there, liek last week I saw a 9800XT 256 for $250 (CAD) compared to the $599 new!
