My System Specs


Given what it will be used for I vote for the cheapest newish gen graphics card you can find. An hd 6450 would fit the bill fine...


Gigabyte Radeon HD 6450 625MHZ 1GB 1.1GHZ DDR3 Low Profile DVI HDMI HDCP PCI-E DX 11 Video Card

$40 with $20 MIR.


or $30 with $10 MIR

XFX Radeon HD 6450 625MHZ 1GB 1066MHZ GDDR3 Low Profile DVI VGA HDMI PCI-E Video Card

As mentioned above newer integrated would be fine, but older stuff is quite slow.

Obviously you could go to a faster GPU if you want, but for flash and internet based items more isn't required IMO. By the time more is required they will need a new CPU that will have faster integrated graphics.
Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3570K 1.09v/4.1ghz with Zalman Optima Cooler, Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb@1866mhz, XFX R9 280X DD, Bitfenix Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, Intel 530 120GB
Away from home light Gamer: Acer Aspire 15.6", A8-3500m undervolt and OC to 2Ghz, 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance, Crucial M500 240gb
