So my AGP card it not even good as GeForce 2 series that has 32mb? or GeForce 3 Series that also has 32mb? Or is my card better than both GeForce series since it's AGP speed. I though that since I have AGP my card would be better even it doesn't have alot of ram or best GPU since PCI is slower. I would think it would be better than GeForce 2 series I mean seriously.
Hmmm interesting your post came in before me. You must of typed the reply before me. But eather way is any PCI GeForce 2 series that has 32mb not good as my AGP2X card? I mean at least it should be better than that low end card I assume.

Whats your budget for this graphics card?
Since my eMachines is 8 years old I usualy play older games so isn't 32mb enough for that? I play like The Sims 2 game and Quake 3 Arena etc and they work. For Quake 3 I can set it to normal and plays fine but for The Sims 2 I set it to the lowest so I can get the best performance. The other game UT 2004 it auto detects the settings I need to play right for my system.
