My friend needs help in choosing a GPU. The only slots on his Motherboard are PCI.(He has an Athlon CPU by the way
) It is for an older HP and he just wants to play Team Fortress 2. It would also be better if the card does not draw too much power. Obviously the lower the price the better and +rep for helpful suggestions.

No, my bad. You did put it in I just missed it and assumed PCI-E.

What was that thing about assumption again?
