if its a Pentium D then i would assume its a 4x/8x - SAPPHIRE 100171L Radeon X1950PRO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail
thats a good higher end card.

There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

it's 8x and looking for mid range ~100 or so

I've tried the 7800gs before but it didn't do very well because of either bottlenecking or the old drivers I could remove off my comp
I'm living off an ati 9200 so anything would be a boost in performance
