    Does your system board *only* support AGP? PCI express is the gold standard now.. It has been for a few years. AGP will limit your options, since they are difficult to find these days and often more expensive than their PCI-e counterparts.

    IGP is integrated into the system board itself. It is non-upgradeable and *always* slower than an AGP or PCI-e card. If you're using an IGP card now, just about any AGP card would be a solid upgrade for you.
