Graphics Card for friend's system

My friend is looking to upgrade his computer with a new graphics card. Currently, he has onboard graphics 😞 . I was looking around and I found a good priced Geforce 7300GT 256MB but was wondering if anyone had better suggestions. He would like to play FSX on a reasonably high setting. I am going to post his current specs below but please don't say things like 'He needs more RAM' or 'He might as well get a new PC' as that isn't an option right now for him. I have already helped upgrade his RAM from 200MB to 1GB and right now, we are focusing on his graphics.

Specs:
Packard Bell I-Media 1328
Intel Celeron D 2.93GHz
1GB DDR RAM
80GB HDD
Onboard SiS 661FX graphics with 64MB memory 😳
Windows Vista Home Premium

You'll have to check and see what card it can take.
It may only have an AGP slot so you have to go with that.

Thanks for the help.

I was sure the 7300GT would be the right one for him but just wanted a last minute check to make sure that there isn't anything better around that price range.

I would not settle for anything less than a 7600GT.
