You need to save up and ditch agp all together cause your only falling more into the hole if you continue to wait to upgrade.

I would spend that $200 dollars for a new mobo ram and cpu, then save up for a graphics cards.. like a 9600gt.

Personally I would never spend $270 for that graphics card. thats just crazy 0_o

not really worth it though

Prices have changed a bit my friend: - POWERCOLOR AG3850 512MD3-P Radeon HD 3850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

That actually makes it worth it to upgrade!!
