Question New AGP card for lower-end system?

Hey guys, this is my first post.

I've got two comps:
- my regular gaming monster; and
- my other is a very normal 1.8 ghz sempron, 1 gig ddr2, 80g pata.

Me and my friend sometimes bring our comps over and LAN something up.

So I was wondering what would the best AGP card be, keeping in mind I don't want the VERY best, because obviously my system will bottleneck at the CPU, or the ram, or the HDD...well, anywhere. =P

Thanks guys,

~Sean~

Go for either the 6000 or 7000 series. The 6800 is a fairly good card considering it's AGP. There's also the 7800GS but that's the top. Good luck finding one in the PCI-E flooded market now!

Yeahh, someone told me 7950 but that's wayy too much! Thanks for helping.

No prob. The 7950 would just run around the same speed as the 6800 because of your CPU as you said.
