Hows this?
Amazon.com: EVGA GeForce 9500 GT 512 MB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 2DVI/HDTV SLI Ready Graphics Card, 512-P3-N954-TR: Computers & Accessories

would this be a good choice for a beginner?

Not much better than your on board graphic's
You'd need at least a 1gb graphics card
Amazon.com: EVGA GeForce 8400GS 1GB SDDR3: Electronics

Lowest used is 27.us

My onboard graphics > crysis > 20-30FPS on bare minimum settings and resolution
and it doesnt support past pixel and vertex 2.0 (some things are in software mode)

The GPU i showed. reviewers have said crysis > max settings at 60FPS 1440x900

is it really as bad as integrated graphics?

I said it wasn't much better than on board graphic's
Besides that is not a low profile card so it may not fit in your case.

As far as the 350w recommended psu
I've used one on a 220w psu without any problem but you do have to be a little conservative on just how much stuff you have running while gaming = pretty much the game and that's it
Not the game and 2-3-4-5... other open tabs or other programs..

The computer in my specs isnt the one i'm going to put the GPU in though.. since
I was thinking of getting one for the Dell Optiplex 360 that i have in the other room. thinking it may beat my current computer with a better GPU
(CPU is way faster than in my acer computer.. twice as fast single core performance and faster overall multi-core performance as well)
With a low profile bracket (have one with me already just in case)

The power supply is 240W which has a self-boosting current feature that temporarily gives a 15W boost when necessary) which I thought was odd but interesting.

I used to have an AMD DIAMOND radeon HD 6450 that had a 300W or so power requirement ran just fine in a 220W PSU till the circuits got bricked from a thunderstorm.

new post. I have a way to buy one online now.. but I need really cheap like candy-bar cheap.. as cheap as can be but still worth it.

Is there any 29$ or under that'd at least give the computer the ability to watch 1080p60FPS video on youtube? even a reasonable DX10 GPU is fine as long as it has comparable openGL support.. Nvidia or AMD.. either one is fine.

There is no sense wasting $29 on a GPU, it will be no better then on board graphics and possibly worse.

I have no video acceleration with onboard graphics. Is there even a cheap one that has video acceleration. I'd be happy even then.
