Should I upgrade my GeForce3 Ti200 if my Mobo only supports 4x?

  1. Hello All,

    I have a 3 year old Dell Dimension 8200. The motherboard only supports AGP 4x. I am currently using a GeForce3 Ti200, 1.8 P4 and 256 PC800 RDRAM. The performance has been good, however I am thinking of doing some upgrades; bigger power supply, second HD and more memory. One question is should I upgrade the Ti200 with a newer card? I have searched the forum and know that an 8x card will work in a 4x slot and that AGP card are faster that PCI. I need your thoughts on if the performance with a newer AGP card will increase enough to be worth the price of the card? Thanks in advance.

    One unsure Goober.
