Default Best AGP Video Card?

I am upgrading an old system to give to a friend as a Christmas present. What is the best AGP card i can get for todays gaming; Crysis, MMO's, CoD4 and Newer such games. Also i am looking for a good set of Ram thats alil old school, 184 pin DDR 400, I saw some G-Skill on newegg, but still wondering if i am missing any really good deals.

I'm not real knowledgeable in ATi card's but I think the best Nvidia Card for AGP 4x/8x would be the 7900GS.

Newegg.com - XFX PVT71KUDL3 GeForce 7900GS 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail

best performing card is:
Newegg.com - GECUBE HX195XTGA3-D3 (R) Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 8X HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail

DX10 Card:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100219L Radeon HD 2600XT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 AGP 8X HDCP Ready Video Card - Retail

but performs like a 7600GS so its pretty much rubbish.

how much ram do you need exacly?

and unless you got a decent dual core comp, i wouldn't suggest upgrading it.
