My 7 year old rig (AGP!) finally died. Money's tight right now (in the middle of a divorce), but I managed to get my hands on an older Dell rig from a local computer shop for $50.  It came without a HDD or memory, but I was able to scavenge those locally.  I need a low end PCI-E video card to replace the integrated video on the mobo.  

If you've got an old one laying around that you'd like to see get a new home, LMK what you want for it and I'll see if I can swing it.  I might have to wait until the 15th depending on the price, but I need one regardless.

Thanks.

I'll see if I can scrounge one up.

I've got an old GeForce 6600 GT sitting around that I'd be willing to send.  I don't know the last time it was used so I can't guarantee much with it, but I'll give it to you for free if you don't find anything better.

EngineNo9, can I at least cover the shipping?

assuming you have the power supply and if it's any better than the 6600, I also have a 1900xt which was the best dx9 card at the time it was released. 

yours for shipping.

The power supply in this Dell is a measly 300w.  It used to be a government computer...the power supply in my dead rig is 420w.  Looks like a PSU of 450w+ is recommended for the 1900XT.  Regardless, I can probably find a larger power supply on the cheap with Black Friday approaching.

Can both of you PM me your addresses and I'll mail out a MO to you each for $10 for shipping?
