I said you can't have agp. PCI is ok but it's slower than agp. But on the otherhand you can get some nice stuff.
I'm stepping out of this thread and going to bed. 6am is fast zooming up.

Buy more RAM. Games require nearly a gigabyte of RAM these guys, and even then, the MINIMUM requirement for RAM is becoming 512MB. So, even if you were to have a nice video card, what's the point if you don't have the RAM to back it up? You won't be able to play games if you don't have sufficient memory. So, get more memory, then if you're using PCI get a 6200 OC.

Well don't video cards with built in RAM add to your computers RAM?

So with 256 MB + 512 MB plus a FX 5500 with 256 MB would that be good?

Actually, those 6200 video cards don't come in PCI. That FX5500 is probably your best bet.

Most of the 6200's I saw require APG.
