All OK, but not that great. Can you splurge for a 6800GS?

$219; but this is pretty much the best AGP card money can buy.

For about $300, you can get the 7800GS... the Cadillac of the AGP cards.

Well of those three the 9600XT is better, but you should spring for a 6600GT or 6800GS, or if you have the money the 7800GS.

If you're buying budget AGP go either 6600 GT or 7600 GT (on the nVidia side at least). I seriously reccomend nothing else if you actually wanna be able to game.

Sure a low budget card like a 9600 will run BF2.... but with 30fps on all low settings? No thanks.
