Default PCI/AGP question(screen shot).

Im looking to upgrade my ATI radeon 9200se. Im looking for a affordable upgrade so I can run Americas Army better, and games of the like.

I was wondering if, http://img258.imageshack.us/my.php?i...apimage2ix.png

means I can only get AGP cards? I'm an uber noob when it comes to this kinda thing, thanks.

Hardware im running.

intel p4 2.8ghz
Asustek P4SD-LE mainboard.
512kb ddr3200 sdram
ATI radeon 9200se
400w psu
SeaGate 80gig hard drive.

Think thats all you need.

So is AGP my only option? thanks.

I think they still have GeForce 6600GTs in AGP....that would probably be your best bet if you can find one.

They are still sold in AGP, and 6600GT is best bet.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...hInDesc=6600gt

Which one of those is the best, or is there really not much difference? Im really on a budget and want a decent video card that won't die on me, and will run new games. Thanks for the help, I would be hopeless without this forum.

From the comment " I think they still have GeForce 6600GTs in AGP" should I be concerned they will stop making these soon? If I wait a month I shouldn't hafto worry, should I?
