New video card on old computer

  1. I want to replace my NVidia MX 440 64 Mb video card with a cheap model with more memory (256mb?). Is there any possibility that my PCChips M484 motherboard won´t recognize a modern card? (It supports AGP8x).
    Possible candidates are RADEON 9250 and GeForce 6200.

    Should work OK, but 128 MB card will work about as well as 256 mb on that motherboard... some aspects of performance might even be better.
    Good AGP cards are becoming rare... I would go for the FeForce 6200.
    Your PCChips M484 is a decent board, for a budget system.

    For a better gpu for the money, a 9600 works very well. Check my system specs, i used to use a 9550 256meg, i now use a 9600 128meg and its quite a bit faster.

    ^^^What kind of games do you play? And would you say GPU>memory when it comes to video cards?
