Default Vid card questions

Which is better price value-wise:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1152837291694

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1140392154117 (got this one)

Also how much better is an integrated 6100 , compare to the 5200 FX PCI?
and finally I had AGP integrated graphics , bought the 5200 FX should I change the BIOS settings to PCI instead of AGP?

The X1300 is probably a much better value.

The advantage with the card is that it has it's own memory instead of leeching off the system's RAM like an integrated solution would. It'll be a little better.

What do you mean by change the BIOS to PCI instead of AGP?? If you mean for graphics, then yes, probably.

Yeah, probably would be a good idea. If it messes anything up you can always switch back.

If you have an AGP slot then I would get a AGP card.

thats the wierd thing, its integrated and when I look inside the comp where the AGP slot would be it looks like it may have been torn off?!?! Anyway there is 3 PCI slots and 4 slots on the case for holding the dcards so I have no idea. I need you to answer the questions plz because I am about to spend money and need ideas.
