    @AlbertLionHeart, quality has it's price, I know. But for general use such as surfing on the net or watching movies, cheap mobos like PC Chips ones are fine.

    No DDR2 has nothing to do with GDDR2.

    I don't know these thing's that why i ask is it a big job to install a pci motherboard?
    because i am thinking it might be better to have a pci rather than an agp motherboard

    Replacing the motherboard is about as big of a deal in custom computing as there is. It is practically building a whole computer, cpu, ram, add on cards all have to be switched obviously. Many times you have to reinstall the OS because of all the chipset differences.

    I think about everything has been said that can be said in this thread. If you go back and look you started off with looking at the low end of current gaming cards for AGP, then gave the possibility of getting a higher end, then started backing down again when good suggestions were given for whatever mood you happened to be in.

    IMO get the 7600GT, not the 7600GS that you seemed to substitute for the GT at some point with no explanation.

    What IS your budget for one? Fix the budget and you'll get a solid recommendation within a short period of time. Keep running us around in circles and you just irritate people.

    This would be a better choice. If you can spend a bit more, get this instead.

    if that does not come with some sot of warenty I would stay away from it as it states in the paste u made that the video card is bent and that is never a good thing.

    PC World is BS. They overcharge too much IMO. Stick to ebuyer, aria and OverClockers UK.

    Can you afford that much though? If you can, this would be a cheaper choice.
