Anyways, how much are you willing to spend? that's kind of like, THE deciding factor. http://www.tomshardware.com/2008/03/05/the...aming_graphics/Read this, decide on a budget, buy. Obviously only the AGP stuff applies to you.

I had a ATI Radeon 9800 XT AGP card that I replaced with a Nvidia 7950GT AGP card. It's about four times faster than the old one and I'm pleased with the performance. However, since it is an Nvidia card, it comes with the Nvidia driver issues with FSAA in FS9, that I have been able to work around. If I could have found an ATI card with the same specs, I would have gotten it instead of the Nvidia card, but AGP selections are very limited and I wanted to get at least 4X more speed for my money. One bonus I got was that the Nvidia card supports Pixel Shader 3.0 while my old ATI card supported only 2.0.You also have to worry about power connections to your motherboard and if your power supply has power to spare. Check out this web site for comparing video cards.http://www.playtool.com/pages/home/index.htmlThis site has AGP cards listed as to power requirements, connectors and a whole host of information for comparing video cards. There's even sections showing what the power connectors look like for the many types out there if you are not a computer expert. Enjoy.Kim
