My System Specs

Default

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...

Example:

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

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.
