Geforce FX 5200 claims shader 2.0 and DX9 support.

Newegg has many choices for $35-$40. Don't go any cheaper than that.
In the $60-$$70 range Geforce FX 5700 or Radeon 9600 are good bets.
Note that games are typically very demanding software and that 5200 will have a short lifespan before newly purchased games require even better hardware.
