My parents ordered it for Christmas, and I have been looking it up online and not seeing many good things about it..My budget is $80 and I'm most likely going to return this and go to Best Buy, unless its not even worth the trip.
I'm going to be playing 3 major games on this graphics card that I wish to run on high graphics on a small 1024x786 monitor:
Left 4 Dead 2,
Unreal Tournament 3,
Is this graphics card enough? Here are my specs:

Yeah, a 9400GT isn't really a gaming card and $80 is about twice as much as it should have cost. Don't buy things like video cards from Best Buy. Use a good online retailer like newegg for much, much better prices. For less than $80 you can get an HD4670 which is several times more powerful than a 9400GT; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
No, like I said it is not a gaming card. If you don't have a credit/debit card then you also seriously don't know anyone willing to order something for you online if you give them the money? Best Buy is simply a terrible option and there are no acceptable gaming cards in that price range that they offer in store.
