Half decent GPU for 60 Euro?

Hey all! Heres the story...I'm modding my old machine into a gamng rig, but I'm on a tight budget. So does anyone know of a half decent PCI (not PCI-E, the normal kind) or AGP graphic card for about 60 or 70 euro? Thanks in advanced!

I know this site is in pounds, but through paypal they can change the currency (I think)
40 equals about €48.

As long as your power supply is at least 400W and of decent quality (all you have in your specs is Cooler Master, which do make a decent PSU) one of these,

Thanks dude! Yeah i just checked the psu and it says "rated: 250w, peak: 300w" so i guess i'll need a psu upgrade to then :/ how much would a 400w one cost on average then?

If you look on this page some are extremely cheap, but for 400 watt power supplies i would recommend spending at least 30 pounds/35 euros on it. Just take a look through that list in that link, and tell us which one you want, and we'll say if it will suit your needs or not.

Hi there I'm surprised how the US ABC (popularly knows as the Absolute BloxxY Crud) channel even survives -- They create a semi passable series called ZERO HOUR - cancel it after 3 or 4 episodes and replace it with some mindless drivel like Wife Swap. Fortunately the rest of the series one...
