Default Looking for a AGP video card.

What is the best AGP video card a dell dimension 4300 could use with a pentium 4 1.6ghz and 512mb of ram. I am unsure if the AGP slot is 2x or 4x if there is some way I can tell for certain would like to know that as well. This would be for gaming so something reasonable high end but that would work with my system.

You also need more ram, if you are going to be gaming. At least another 512mb ram. What is your budget?

I agree...512 ram isnt that expensive and you will see a nice increase in performance from 512.

I'll sell you my GeForce 6200 AGP 8X, brand new, for a mad cheap price!!
It's about $70, you might find it cheaper somewhere else like at a clearance. But I'm always here D:

i think the best agp card is the Gainward Bliss 7800GS+ Golden sample (according to most users) but they are hard to come by, next its the
x1950Pro, i saw this auction for a x1950pro xtreme with 768mb of memory but i think its a fake auction, after the x1950 por a 7800gs will take third
