X850Pro is not good option.

According to these benchmarks 7600GT beats x850xt PE

So, 7600GT is better option

you can get eVGA 7600GT KO for $139.99 after $20.00 Mail-In Rebate

Maroon1- please post the link to the benchmarks you found, not just the picture. That is just one picture from one game. It varies among games. Also, the X850Pro IS a good option for AGP. He has AGP, not PCIe.

j369852147412- Do you have DDR or DDR2? You could switch motherboards and get a PCIe video card. If you plan to play Crysis, then you'll want a DX10 card down the road. That's why I recommend getting the X850Pro. It'll hold you off quite well until DX10 gets released and a new system is worth it.
