My desktop has no graphics card and i wanted to get one mainly for improved browsing and video. It has to be <=300 Watt and PCIe x16 with preferably a VGA out. I am looking for something cheap and will be happy with 5 year old tech. Can someone please recommend what fits the bill?

His build may be old, but there would still be a PCI-Gen2 16x slot on a 5yr old machine.
I know there were issues between Gen2 cards and 1.1 slots.

The motherboard your using would help OP, just so we know whether this is even a possible issue.

My desktop is Gateway GT5238e, specs are The specs only say PCI Express ×16. I added a 2TB caviar green HD and 4GB RAM to this.
Also i was looking to buy something around $15 on ebay, would ATI Radeon X300 or X600 work.
