dude for only $100 dollars i cant find anything better than that 9800xt you have. for $100 you cant really get anythign good from nvidia. go ati if you have 100. I say just buy the 9800xt. Although you best bet would be to get the 6800GS in agp:

i think you should go with the XFX GeForce 6200A its good for the money it will run good games like bf2 on mid settings.

For $100 you can get an X1300pro which is a lot better than the 6200 and 7300gs, but IDK if they come in AGP.

agree. the 6200A is a bad choice. Too overpriced.
