$20 after MIR - XFX HD-645X-YNH2 Radeon HD 6450 512MB 32-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you want a little more power and are willing to come up a little in budget, I would get this:
$50 after MIR - XFX GT-430X-CAF2 GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 2GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You will actually be able to play newer games on the GT 430. Plus, it comes with a free copy of Call of Duty 4.

Those are some awesome cards but can are they compatible with the mobo? If you look at the mobo specs it just sais PCI express x16. no 2.0 or 2.1?

That means you have PCI-E version 1 on a x16 channel. Anything newer than that is still compatible with version 1 (just like how SATA is all reverse compatible). Plus, with this being more of a budget card, you probably won't saturate a x16 version 1 PCI-E channel anyway.
