I think the best agp card one can get is the 4670.

Newegg.com - HIS H467Q1GHDAP Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128-bit DDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

^didn't know they made an agp card that high, pretty nice for those that are still using agp motherboards.

Welll.. Your CPU may be a tad slow..

But so long as your not playing on a 24' or bigger I think it should be fine.

^monitor size. He's talking about the resolution for monitors, the higher resolution that you will be playing at the lower fps you will get. Most 24' monitors are a 1080p res or 1080x1200...so as long as you are below that, 1280x1024, or 1680x1050, etc...then you should perform fairly well.

yes it will be better then the one you have, yes it will make games run smoother (depending if u ramp up the settings though) and yes it will be good for games like bioshock....that res is quite low so you should be able to play games a rather decent settings...
