Didn't you ask this already? You did...

Ok, back to stage one...

What is your budget, your PC is AGP 8X equipped, meaning no PCI Express for you, so 6800Ultra is as high as it goes on the nVidia side, x850 on the ATi side. BUDGET= ???

For a 6800GT, probably, for a 6600GT, No, most likely not.. then again, I can't be sure since I don't know the size of your powersupply. I will try and look it up using the database here at school.

i looked at more sites and i couldn't find what the watts of you PSU(power supply) is.if you get a newer graphics card i would think you would but it all matters on which one you get.

According to our database, it is 250watts. Meaning... yeah... that is a problem sorta.. What I would do is replace the PSU and get a new graphics card. A 400watt or better is GREAT, and a 6600 or 6600GT or better is PERFECT.
