Default 9800 Pro Upgrade

Hello,

Currently I have a 9800pro. I am looking to upgrade my 9800pro to something a alot better, alot faster. I am a gamer playing World of warcraft, battlefield 2, lineage 2, Counter-strike: source, Day of Defeat: source.

As you can see i play a wide range of games. So i need something that will give me good FPS, but also not put a hole in my pocket.

Any suggestions would be welcome. Budget is at 300$

It must be AGP 4x/8x.

Thanks, Dar

not sure what the performance/price ratio for this thing is, but i'd say its the fastest $300 agp card out there (or even fastest agp card...but don't quote me on that..)

What are the rest of your specs?

Buy a cheap PCIE-16 mobo and then buy a 7800GT for 250
