Video card needed

Hi Guys, I was hoping to get some help as I need a new video card as my on-board one bit the dust. I am not good at telling which one is compatible with my D945GTP chipset. Can someone find me a real cheap one between $10 and $20 on newegg or something similar.

thx

Your onboard one is dead but the motherboard works? What PSU do you have - 12V rails?

Could it be anything else as I dont have any other issues with this board so I am assuming its the graphics card. I dont want to spend much money on this card coz it is secondary PC of mine.

thx

Working within the budget given ($20 max) the card recommended by Stormy13 is a total GEM! I doubt you can do better...

Yes it is. Other than the manufacturer it is identical to the one I linked too. Great price too if the rebate comes in.

"Most" companies deny a percentage/all rebate requests...if you make enough noise about it...them maybe, maybe you will get the rebate...
