MDMAS - I knew you were an Aussie straight away, just by your vernacular and language! I'm still laughing at the Eagles thrashing over the Storm, it was bliss, and that's coming from a Dragons fan! Good luck with AGP upgrade. Your PC should get you by for a while, but sooner or later your CPU and memory limitations will bottleneck your games if you don't upgrade.

Lol, 40-0!!! What a thrashing. I was happy anyone beat Melbourne!

That 3850 will be a good card, although what is your power supply?? Do you know how many amps on the 12v rails it puts out?

hahaha, yeah you're not wrong. 250 watts is very low for today's standards, and that is assuming it has a reasonable 12V amperages. However, since most AGP cards are fairly old and presumably use less power you should be OK, but do check power requirements beforehand.
