That looks good to me. I got the MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 128MB RAM with AGP 8X and VIVO (video in video out). It came with 10 CD-ROMS of software including full versions of Morrowind, Ghost Recon, and Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project. I got it for $170.

i was also looking into this one, which is $72.

again, i'm looking for a card mainly for surfing the web with a LCD (1280x1024) and possibly some minor gaming.

That should do the job as well, but a GeForce3 would be better than a GeForce4 MX. As long as it's only light gaming you should be okay with the GeForce4 MX.
