I wouldnt spend more than $50 on an AGP card, and the performance is crap compared to PCI-E. I think the X850 was the last of the ATI before they went to PCI-E. Card must be 5 years old now!

you might as well save even more money by just getting a regular PCI gfx card....

i mean it just amazes me at how fast technology evolved.

my pc cost me about $3k which i built myself about 5 years ago using all the kick ass parts for its time such as 3.2ghz p4, x850 xt pe ($500 video card at the time, now for $500 these video cards are insane), 500gb hd, 2gb ram, koolance, etc.

i just don't want to throw it out lol, i believe it still has alittle life in it with a new agp video card maybe 2-3 more years then i will have to build an entire new system again ...

AGP is so... three years ago?

That card referenced in post #2 is for CAD and other workstation-level design. Not sure if this what you're looking for.

Here is one of the best video cards money can buy:
