  1. I only have money right now for an AGP card.. so bare with me.

    AGP GeForce 6800 xt 256 DDR3 NVIDIA XFX
    Biostar MOBO socket 478
    Celeron D 2.66 cpu
    1.5 Ram pc 3200
    ultra X 500 watt psu

    When i play Black and White 2 my graphics are still a little laggin for some reason. The specs are good though.

    Well i just bought the card. So buying another one is out of the question. However, i want to use it for gaming, is it good enough? And what should be the next must needed step to upgrade?

    That card should handle those games properly. However, you CPU may be the bottleneck on that system. Celeron D CPU's arenĀ“t great for gaming. Still, they can manage to run them, but not too well.
