Do you have AGP or PCI-e or none?

NO PCI video card is worth it for gaming. Build a new machine or dont game. You need AGP or PCI-E.

don't waste your cash on the 6800GT if you're looking to buy a 6800 series... the performance is virtually the same as the 6800GS. But yeah, that's the deal. 6600GT or 6800GS. If you're rich, go for a 7800GT or 7800GTX
