    Cpt.Crappy there are a lot of names for people who do what you say you did with your grandparents computer ..... "dishonest" is the most inoffensive term that I can come up with at the moment.

    cheesemonster I have no idea what country you hail from, therefore no idea what dollar you are using. Geforce4 ti4200 is one of the most recommended cards for a budget system. There are others here who may have better ideas for you.

    hey dog, be as offensive as you want i dont care, not like they need it for running exel or word....they wanted a fast computer from dell and they had the money and so they got it, they didnt need it soo technicaly lets just say im borowing it for a long long time...and cheeseman is sittin right next to me, he is the the US and that card cheapest i have seen it is 90 bucks....ps there not my real grandparents either so that makes it worse:no:

    If you want to be offensive then I can be more so and just ban quicker than you can turn around so you better wake up to yourself real quick boy.

    boys, play nice.

    cheesemonster, assuming you are talking US dollars (I doubt you can get anything decent for $150 Aus.), you may want to consider an Radeon 9600 Pro. It's more powerful than a Ti4200 and has Dx9 support.

    here's a few available from newegg.com:
