aw so I guess it doesn't have an AGP port?

and if you mentioned that before we'd of been able to say straight away "Get a new board" hehe. Its a shame that though, though it is old...

I hope it gets sorted soon

I didn't really help then

Glad its working though now
Can't understand why a loose bios chip would have caused the video not to work, unless the whole computer wasnt really booting to send a signal to the video card in the first place This was probably the case

Kewl. Yeah it might have happend, but if the bios wasn't working properly, it probably wouldn't have gone past POST (Power On Self Test) so wouldn't have actually gone to windows I wouldn't of thought.... otherwise the whole idea of pushing the bios chip in makes no sense

Yep, I hope its all working good when you get it back!

As for the video card, to play up to date games, I would normally consider getting a Geforce 6600GT as its a cheapish card, and will play up to date games at really good quality settings and resolutions, but this is no good if you don't have a AGP slot...

I can't really think of any cards that are PCI and still reletivly new and so up to scratch. Anyone know of any? (If you have AGP, go for the 6600GT)

Thats basically it really, since you have the rest of it. You just need a good enough video card now
At least if you can support AGP on your motherboard, when you get new parts (motherboard and CPU, and probably RAM too) you can just add this card to the new setup. If you get a PCI one and you want to update, you'll probably end up throwing the PCI one away to get an AGP or PCI-E card, so thats the only problem. I'm sure there are some good ones available though.

I hope this helps
