err, the absolute best AGP card that you can get now is a x1950PRO. It'll be the last and best AGP card to ever buy, as PCI-E becomes the new standard. You'll notice an IMMENSE difference from that 9200 your currently using. It's like a tricycle vs a 1969 Pontiac GTO running on jet-fuel.

oh, only thing is, your cpu MIGHT bottleneck the card a little, although I'm a little more than certain that might not be the case
