  1. Have a case and spare power supply unit already that can handle your needs? If not, there goes any budget at all for a video card.

    Drop a gig of RAM and you've freed up about $100. Might need too if the budget is extremely tight, or just grab a $20 cheapo PSU, spend $70 for a case, and grab the cheapest video card you can. Then when you get the cash up the power supply unit, then your video card, then finish up by getting that second gig of RAM.

    Just my suggestion. Other then that, I've voted.
