Default X800 replacement

Hey guys,

Been a while since I posted here. Last time I posted was when I got my new rig...so far its running great!

Recently, my Dell XPS Gen 3 has been acting funny, which I attribute to the video card. The original card is an ATI X800 PCI-E 256mb. Its for my brother, all he does is play guild wars on it.

I'm looking for a cheap <60$ replacement for it. What do you guys suggest?

I'm thinking a 4650 or 4350.

NCIX.com - Buy MSI Radeon HD 4650 600MHZ 512MB 1.0GHZ DDR2 PCIe DVI VGA Video Card - R4650-D512V2 In Canada.

$60 for a 4650

A 4650 would definitely be the best card your going to be able to eek out in with your budget
