Default Geforce 6800 GT upgrade.. too what?

what would be a good upgrade from a Nvidia Geforce 6800 GT 256mb?

I'm looking for a better more up to date graphic card then this one and i have around 150 to spend, it has to be AGP as well.

thanks

A 7600GT Is not AGP either. It's the GS. I'd get the 7800GS or an X1650Pro.

The best card you can get for AGP today is the ATI x850xt, but I am not sure if 150 pounds is enough.

yeah you can get them both in AGP because i have seen the X1950pro for sale.

i don't wanna spend to much on a card seen as PCI express is being phased in.
