    What kind of games do you play? What screen res. and game res. do you want to use? What's your budget?

    I love playing Half-Life, counter-strike, or anything like that. I dont care about the screen res. oh it has be enither a PCI Card or a AGP 4x card. by the way, will the AGP 8X card work on the AGP 4X card? I'll pay no more than $200 for the card.

    If you have agp 4x with 1.5v signaling voltage, it should be compatible with 8x cards that support agp 4x/8x. Pci cards are not nearly as fast as agp. One of the better pci cards is the 5700le, about $90.

    Depends on the games u play

    It depends on the game u play, a good card to start will be the Geforce Fx 5700 128 mb if u play old games and dont mind the resolution but for newer games u must look for the anything like the Geforce 6600 GT.

    Personaly i think a geforce 5700 or ati 9600 will do.
