Kids Super budget GPU

Alright my old computer was passed down to the kids unfortunately the 8800GT that was in it died.

I need help finding the cheapest GPU for this computer. Basically they are 5 and 7 and only play flash games and watch movies on this computer so the cheaper the better.

Eventually this is going to be a throw away computer when I can build a new one so I really do not want to put much money at all into it.

  1. maybe a radeon 4650/4670 would do the job? its not as good as the 8800gt but its a low power graphics card and cheap :)

    EDIT: this one looks like a nice one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102855&cm_re=4670-_-14-102-855-_-Product

    Flash games and movies don't need that powerful cards. Get the cheapest PCI-ex card.
