Default What graphics card

i have had a look around and all I can really find are really expensive graphics cards here. I was hoping to upgrade my graphics card with £90 of my wages this month thats about $165

I have an Athlon XP 2100+
512mb DDR PC3200 RAM
Asus A7N8X-X
8x AGP

Any help will be amazing, thanks

the eVGA 6600gt (dunno how much pounds that costs)

if you can't afford it, then save up another month until you do

I dont really know what I should be searching for but is this any good? http://www.komplett.co.uk/k/ki.asp?s...1-03B0D58EDEA7

And while im here I heard that the eVGA (Is that the manufacturar) cards are good to overclock. Would this be easy for someone with no over clocking experiance to do; and would it provide any significant boosts in performance for this model?

I suggest a eVGA or LeadTek 6600 GT. Overclocking is not easy, nor hard. It just takes experience.
