Default Graphics card problem

Cut a long story short.

I have no AGP slot only Pci's
Now i know the Pci gfx cards are slower than the agp
Would i be wise in changing my motherboard?
I have a bit of money to spend i see motherboards are around the 80-120 mark. i have about this to spend on a gfx card too.

Can anyone recommend a motherboard and gfx card for me?
I have a Intel Celeron 2.6gHz processor.
Do you need any more info?

any helpers would be great
Daz

What are the key specs you are looking for with a gfx card then? I see those 2 above are only 128mb video memory where as there are 256mb for cheaper, is this not such an important factor?

256 is the best idea, lots of nice RAM.

How about this bundle:

http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/s...tml?MBB-P43084

My CPU being celeron 2.6Ghz is really lacking. (wanting good Gameplay)
What do you guys think of that combo package.
I will then add a FX5900XT ultra to that..
