Or if you really need to get an ati agp, I guess go with the all-in-wonder x800xt which is 290$ on newegg
but that's only if you're limited to agp ati

Wow, $290 for an X800XT. If this is the case, just go with the new 6800GS(AGP) which pwns the X800XT for around $200.

6800gt = overpriced.
x800 anything = crap.

Sorry but id upgrade if you have any money. 7800gt is best bang for your buck high end card and 6800gs is best bang for your buck mid-range card.

Cheers.

Trust us, we know what we're talking about.

what's your CPU socket?

socket 939: MSI K8N Neo4-F - $81.50
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491
+ 7800 GT

socket 754: MSI K8N Neo3-F - $69
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130493
+ 7800 GT

socket 775: Gigabyte GA-8I915PL - $64
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128287
+ 7800 GT

those boards have PCI-E 16X slots. I'd strongly recommend you do get PCI-E 16X, because:
1. you can get the 7800 GT
2. you can get future PCI-E cards
3. if you upgrade your CPU and maybe motherboard, you probabbly won't have to upgrade the video card also

Go with an AGP 6800GS because it has SM 3.0, on par with a 6800GT or X800XT, and its only $200. not only that, but the drivers alone are worth it.
