For $60, you can grab one of these and get a little more life out of that system: POWERCOLOR HD 2600XT 512MB AGP

There's also the HD 3850 AGP, which is a lot more powerful.

Been reading some bad things on the 3850 cards specifically how there are no drivers for them and how it makes their computer crash. Dont want that to happen with me.

I prefer to stick to the Nvidia cards. with that in mind, which one is the best on the market for AGP?

Can my Motherboard handle a regular PCI video card and are there better ones for this format as opposed to AGP?

yeah, that 8200 would upgrade your system... 6 series (even 7 series) nvidia cards are out of date

Well, however you heard that from doesn't have a clue what they are talking about. The HD 3850 is the fastest AGP card on the market by far.
