AMD 5450s have been going on sale for $10-20 and sometimes 6450s have also sold similarly. Will Nvidia sell budget cards on the 5450 level for cheap?

I have been working on an htpc for a while now. I want to use it for home videos, pics, music. Probably won't do any gaming on it and I probably won't be able to. I like Nvidia because it's less of a hassle with linux and they are more energy efficient.

If I go the used route, what's a good price range for used budget cards? Any recommendations?

Thanks

It doesn't look like it, and it more than likely depends on the vendor, it's not really the manufacturer going "we'll be nice and sell these real cheap".

Is this a new build or a recycled one? And does it already have integrated graphics of some kind?

It's a recycled build. I need a graphics card with HDMI. I'll might wait a bit.

Someone is selling a GT610 used for $20. I'm going to inquire about that.
