What thatm oike 30? you are looking at Geforce4MXs and Radeon 9200s. Ive
seen 5200's for 40 ($72) if you can stretch a few dollars further.

Of course, if you are looking for just a 2D card then you can get some alot
cheaper.

Any $50 5200 would have a 64-bit memory interface. That's fine if you
don't care about 3D performance, but if you do, a better buy for $50
would be a GeForce3. There are a few listed in pricewatch.com in that
range (or there's always eBay).
