Yeh those are OK... PCI has been forgotten a bit, in the past few graphics card ranges.

What are you looking to do with your computer? E.g. Word processing, Games, etc.

man i hate pci. its all my mobo has (which is why im getting a new one)

FYI: AGP x8 is literally 20 times faster than PCI

^^ that statistic alone is making me buy a new mobo

but if you wanna stick with pci, those are both fine cards

Yeah but when you buy a name brand computer. Most of them dont come with AGP slots. Thats y you never buy one. You either find a small local company. A company like alienware or build your own.
