  1. Ok my friend wants to buy a new graphics card, the price range is £30 - 60 (I know nothing incredible can be bought with that) he isnt desperate for it to play top spec games just like enhance the visual performance of medievil total war 2 for games like that.

    The link above is a link to the computer he has, the tech specification page, io think it has an AGP slot it says accelerated AGPx8 or something, can you double check i dont know if it will definently take AGP GFX Cards.

    If you can find one between £30 - 60 i would be very appreciated, hopefully the best quality for the price. In dollars thats around $65 - 130.

    Thanks Again.

    Motherboard's installation needs

    It appears he didn't det a manual or a cd.You really need these.
    The cd has drivers and Utilities that need installing.My AGP asus Board has the SIS AGP graphics driver.
    It's installed for any video card thats AGP.
    Go to ATI.com.The 9600 or 9200 should be in your price range.
    The 9600 is 8x,not sure of 9200,but its will be listed.
