computer technology is the worst for that sort of thing...it does get rather annoying when you buy a computer and a month later there is something better released.

So you have AGP graphics port than? There are a lot of video cards you can get:

Oh yeah, this one will be smoking on your system. The next thing you will need is better CPU, lol:

eVGA 256-A8-N507 Geforce 7800GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card

I can tell you didnt read the whole thread. He doesnt have agp, he has PCI...Which sucks, so we told him to get an agp board since they dont make a pci-e board for his processor. Now I guess is just thinking what to do..That cars is out of his price range, When I said he can get a mobo for 250 and a gpu he said " like thats cheap" implying that he doesnt want to spend too much. Guess well just have to wait and see what he does

If he doesn't want to spend the money, I don't see anything else he can get besides the FX5500 PCI version. Not a significant upgrade for the cost. I would just leave it as it is then. It's still got some life to it.

Then do a major overhaul next year. I'm sure you can still play a lot of games with that video card.

Sounds like the best idea. A Graphics Card upgrade is not really the most important upgrade you could get Computer-wise. And new Motherboards are not that expensive anymore, its the Processors that are.
