Default ATI video card question

Ok so ive got a radeon 9200 right now...yeah yeah laugh, ok anyways my question is should I go ahead and upgrade my video right now seeing that 8x agp cards are at a low price or should I just stick it out and wait for a complete overhaul so I can utilize PCIe - some input would be nice thax

First of all, welcome to the forums

That really depends on what you use your system for. If gaming is your main thing, then I suggest that you upgrade. If your current system is doing alright and gaming isn't a big deal for you, you should wait and get yourself a nice video card with a dual core processor.

I still have my 9200SE. I'm waiting for the X1600XT as my mobo supports PCIe.

The 6800 regular for AGP is probably the best bang for the buck card out there right now. At over $100 less than the 6800 GT, this card lays waste to both the 6600 GT AND X800Pro. If you are going to upgrade now, get a 6600 GT.
