Default VGA card upgrading

Hello there...i'm new in here!

I've got a little problem with my VGA card but i didn't make a post
at troubleshooting section because i'm thinking to buy a new one.

So,i have an Ati radeon 9550 128mb and i have lots of problems
(shuting down the monitor while i'm in windows and sometimes
when i start my pc my monitor doesn't open).
I'm really sick and tired of this so i wanna ask you people if you
have any suggestion of what VGA card (AGP) should i buy.
In order to help me about this,i think you need the label of my
motherboard,so it's Gigabyte GT 2004 edition
(model name: 8IPE775-G)
with a Pentium4 3.2GHz CPU (in case it's useful).
If you need more information about my system please ask me.

Hint: I'm not a pro gamer (but i still love some games like UT etc.)
so i don't need an extreme VGA card. I just want it to be good for
my system and comfortable with games. My current VGA card
fulfils my needs but it doesn't work properly (at my system).

P.S please try to include in your suggestions more than 1 VGA
cards because I'm from Greece and our technology market is a
little noobish

Thanks alot for your time.

Well the 6600gt will fulfill those requirements with having UT 2k4 on the highest settings. The 6800 will as well supplying a few more fps.

Do you have any sites you know of that are based in grece?

and I also found the same FX6600GT

http://www.plaisio.gr/IWCatProductPa...Id=1&sts_cid=3

with only 7euro difference (it's about 8-9 dollars)

are these cards I found the ones you were talking about?

Thanks alot for your reply

erhm...the link you gave is the FX one... but however, through
the comparison system of the site i saw that the Asus VGA card
has 1000MHz memory clock in stead of the 550MHz of the
Albatron one. So I guess i should get the Asus one since it's
almost same price..
