probs not more than about £50 which is about $30 but that is second hand off ebay anyways the mobo is an old soltek mobo with an amd duron 1.1ghz and 640MB ram , it supports agp up to 4X . i mean if you can show me one for aboout $50 that will be ok i like the look of that Evga from newegg , i mean anythin from 128MB should do the job
does this look like a good card http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...3711&rd=1&rd=1

or is this one better http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...0097&rd=1&rd=1

so even if i buy a card that is for AGP8x it will just clock down to AGP4X then if i upgrade mobo to AGP 8X in the future it will run at full speed ok , so anyoe know any good AGP4X/*x graphics cards anywhere up from 128MB is good
NOT im not gonna use it for hardcore gaming just some older games like the sims and general office tasks and photoshop

7800GS, but thats expensive. I would go with something like the 7600GS like above maybe. Or an FX card.

dude no offense...i used to have a 5200fx...it sucked balls...well unless you get a 256mb version...if i were you i still still get a newer 7k series..like a 7300le maybe.....because just never technology is faster and the 7300le is way cheap
