you can get a FX5200 on newegg for $70, it's PCI though, but it is great for the cash, it plays any game that i throw at it very smoothly. I'm sure they have better than that for the same price in agp cards.

Its just it isn't AGP like your card may possibly be, probably in fact.

I don't know about $70 though... doesn't sound so good to me for a PCI; but that's the sort of thing you'd be after if you wanted to play that.

ok there are different types of ports onh your motherboard, in which you plug in the graphics card, yours has an agp slot, along with probably a few pci slots, you need to look for a graphics card that is AGP 8X, it is faster than PCI and can deliver a lot more information faster, so you can get better cards.
