ATI is garbage in my opinion.

Get a BFG GeForce FX 5200

I've got the GeForce FX5200 256MB AGP, it came with my PC.

What a load of junk, it really is. Comes as no surprise you can buy them brand new for 25. It makes many decent games chop like Bruce Lee if you don't put the graphics down to Ultra-Impossibly-Low.

If I wasn't going off to Uni I'd upgrade it to a 6800GT or something.

If you have to buy either of those eBay cards, get the 5900. My friend's got one and it even runs BF2 at something more than a slideshow.

alright listen... all i am trying to do here is get something completely crappy that will run World of Warcraft a little bit better at least. i am running at about 25 frames per second or lower which really sux right now. i am looking to spend UNDER $100 for a video card better than a Geforce4 MX440, and im getting a 512 stick of PC2100 ram. i need the RAM and the VIDEO CARD to add up to below $100 USD. i dont care where they are from.

Your not gonna find anything like that pal even if you find a card that cheap it's still going to suck. Save up some more cash.

Bob you're wrong... the 5200 will run WoW just fine. But you can't buy Ram AND a video card under 100 bucks. How much ram do you have right now?

i have a 256 stick and a 125 stick so i figured if i kept the 256 and put in a 512 of PC2100 (thats what my computer takes) i would have a little less than a gig, so it would be all set. and i found some RAM for like $30.
