Default Graphics Card Upgrade

Hi,

i currently have a 3Dfx Voodo 3 graphics card which is obviously going as the PC keeps falling over visually. I have removed the card and installed a 4mb old one which works great.

I have a Gigabyte GA-7IXE4 MOBO which will allow a 2x AGP connection I think? Which is the best card for me to install which will work? I was looking for in excess of 64Mb.

Thanks

A graphics card that old? I would check and make sure it isn't PCI first.

Thanks. I have installed EVEREST on my PC which confirms it is an AGP port although I have PCI slots free. I really don't know what to do with this as I have already bought the wrong card once.
