Its a Powercolor Radeon 9550 256MB, like i said its that connector that the problem.
Ok, Ive been doing some reseach on a selection of card, if anybody has time could you please tell me which one will work and will be my best by, thanks in advance.

Inno3D Geforce FX 5200 (256MB): http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/119722
Connect3D RADEON 7000: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Connect3D-RA...9852707&sr=1-1
Inno3D Geforce FX 5200 (128MB): http://www.ebuyer.com/product/119723/product_info/rb/0

Thats all ive got so far, the 2 geforce ones say they are agp 8x/4x, will they be too quick for the port seeing as its only 2x but can support up to 4x?

This is what the manual says about the AGP socket:
AGP expansion-card connectors: one
AGP expansion-card connector size: 124 pins
AGP expansion-card connector data width (maximum): 32 bits
AGP: 66 or 133 MHz

Thanks for all the replys, yeh that card does look good but im just not sure if it will definately work seeing as it says its AGP 8x/4x but mine has a 2x socket but CPU-Z says it will support a max of 4x (as shown in the picture further above). This PC only has a Pentium III-E 700mhz.
