    something like a 7600gs

    at 1024 x 768 anything will do though.. my mobile ati radeon 64mb plays css at medium graphics @ 1024 lol

    ..a 7300 would probably sort you out or this http://forums.hexus.net/showthread.p...63#post1186163

    That's a x300 Mike
    I'd agree with that 7600GS although the 7300GT is not far behind it (make sure it's gddr3 memory)

    ATi x1550 / x1500 same sort of price
