Thanks. Thats what I wanted to hear.
Sorry if I offendend anyone by my PCI cards suck statement, I shouldn't have been so judgmental of them, because they do have their purpose. I understand that a lot of computers can't use AGP video cards, and in that case may be a huge advantage, but on my computer, I did notice a difference, and I'm by no means a big time gamer.
The PCI card did give better looking results than my previous NVidia 256 32MB OEM card, but I did have to endure a lot of choppiness in almost every game I did play, especially Ghost Recon, even at 800x600x16 with limited detail. my previous card only showed such lag at at least one level resolution above that, and I didn't have to pay $130 for it, it was worth max $60 new with the comp. I just felt that the performance relative to a lower end 3D AGP card was quite noticable, and if you are paying any amount of cash for a card that is 3D and boasts some gaming strengths, you want some results for your money. Who knows, maybe it is the chipset itself.
Anyways, thanks for the help everyone, I'm pleased with the results I got from this forum, and will definitely look for more answers here in the future.
