What is the best card I can get for gaming in that price range. 80$ really is the most I can spend on it.

If you're adding a video card just to add one or are upgrading an existing one, you should save your money because $80 doesn't get you a whole lot.

But if you absolutely must have a video card, Radeon HD 6670 is the best one at that price point.

I'd come up with$5 more dollars assuming your system can handle a full height card and has a PCIe x16 slot.

I am buying the video card because it is the last piece I need to finish building my girlfriends computer.

I found this card on craigslist for $30$

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA22F0ZB3731

It runs smooth with no artifacts, is playing all the modern games at 1920x1080 at medium settings and staying around 50 fps, so we are very happy.

That is an excellent buy and the equivalent of the 7750 (DDR5) in performance. But it is 171W TDP as opposed to 55W. Hope you have the PSU for it (about 500W).
