If you play with newegg's video menu options, you should be able to
find something you want.
You can also try pricewatch and pricegrabber.
I have a HP A1110n(on sale $399 from Fry's) w/ 3 PCI slots only and
Intel built in video.
I got 1GB pc3200 installed $70.00 from Fry's.
ATI diamond PCI 9250 256MB dx9 from newegg for ~$40.00
ATI HDTV from Buy.com for ~$110.00
Now I watch HDTV and play Far Cry at ease.
BTW. I can have 3 displays at the same time.(1 from Intel onbard, and
2 from ATI 9250).
A1110n has 250W psu only, but I have no problem with above setup.
Fry's has Compaq sr1620nx on sale for $399.99 this weekend.
If it is sold out try other Fry's stores.
IMHO, sr1620nx has better setup(better onboard video) than A1110n.
