Just looking for a general purpose card to put in a friend's old system. I found a GT 210 for 20 bucks online, but do you think the system could handle more? Like a GT 430 or hd 6450? Or is it a waste to get more than the GT 210? Thanks.

It could handle a GT 440 really, but if it's general purpose there is no real good reason to go with a higher end card.

The 210 and 6450 are more like productivity based cards, but if he is not doing any gaming, they aren't bad choices.

I have a 8800GTX on my 4600+ and it bottlenecks alot some higher end games (hey a bottleneck is better than no graphics at all), but that runs alright as well. A nice power supply is required for that one though.

Of those choices, the GT430 or a GT440, like mentioned above are nice. The 6570 or 6670 are also nice choices.

If the friend is not gaming, the GT430 is the best choice, since it would have a lower price.

I just ordered an MSI HD 6570 for 53 bucks to put in it. It sure seems like a good deal, I'll post again when it gets here if I remember lol.

Well, I cancelled the hd 6570 order and got a GT 430 instead because i read that sometimes pci-e 2.1 x 16 cards don't play well with older pci-e x 16 boards, and it's working great. Runs a bit hot IMHO, but it's a warm system anyway so that's probably it. Dialed up the fan speed to 80% and no problems.
