    You're gonna struggle dude. The best card out of those you mentioned is the 9600 pro, but that will suck trying to play modern games. Most newer games will have to be played on low-settings.
    Purple board, could be ECS or Foxconn? The make doesn't really matter, as ong as its got AGPx8 stamped on it somewhere.

    You are going to have to say what your budget is (and to a lesser extent what resolution you want to game at), otherwise people don't have any idea what you can afford. For the most part, more money = better performance.

    Hmm.... avoid those Nvidia FX series at all...

    Out of those cards you mentioned, the 9600PRO wins easily... However please tell us how much can you afford, so we can recommend a better card.

    9800 pro 256mb is about the best agp for a cheap price.

    I disagree. The 7600GS\GT and X1650PRO are the best AGP cards for their price.

    sorry, i did generalise somewhat. I meant that you could probably get a 9800pro for about £30.
    But yes i agree with Rage 7600 or X1650 would be money better spent, cos i think they have a newer shader model as well.

    If you can only afford one of those cards you mentioned then i think you're screwed. They won't enhance your gaming experience very much i'm afraid.
    Your pc is bottleneck city.

    I think you mean the GeForce 6600 and 6800 series. The 6800 would be the best pick but only if it's a 6800GT or a 6800GS. If it's a 6800LE or a 6800XT, avoid it and get a 6600 instead. Both will give you good performance in games but the 6800GS\GT would allow you to run games at higher detail settings.
